The Federal Planning Division (FPD) of the American Planning Association (APA) is pleased to announce its second regional training workshop. The objective of this regional workshop is to provide a venue for participants to share their planning knowledge, successes, and concerns with colleagues from other federal agencies in ways that will promote interagency collaboration. This workshop will provide opportunities to learn about new approaches for leveraging change. In this one-day training workshop, people can share lessons learned, gather new ideas, and discuss ways to partner in the following three tracks:

· Succeeding Beyond Transitions
· Beyond Bollards, Boulders, and Berms
· Harnessing New Technologies

Planners and consultants who work in the fields of regional planning, city planning, urban design, landscape architecture, architecture, environmental engineering, historic preservation, natural and cultural resource management, and other related fields are welcome to participate in the FPD’s regional training workshop.
