 Professional Development

APTA works to provide its members with an increasing set of professional development programs, resources, and opportunities. In October 2008, APTA Chair Dr. Beverly Scott identified workforce development as one of her top priorities and established a Blue Ribbon Panel for Workforce Development to address, outline, and take action on our industry's strategic workforce priorities over the next five years and beyond.

We encourage our members to take advantage of numerous APTA development opportunities. A sampling of these opportunities includes APTA conferences, facilitated training sessions and workshops, executive-level forums and leadership development program, online training and working groups, industry standards development, online training and scheduled webinars, and webcast events.

Most recently, APTA partnered with the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP), the professional institute of the American Planning Association to award Certification Management (CM) credits tailored to the needs of new and experienced planning officials and APTA members attending recognized and approved sessions at APTA conferences and events. APTA plans to continue and broaden its certification offerings.

In addition to APTA offerings and programs, we encourage you to take advantage of training and professional development offerings and resources available through our many partners, member offered programs, and shared resources.
