Planning Commissioners Academy register now

We strongly suggest testing your device ahead of time at zoom.us/test to ensure the best possible experience. If this is your first time connecting to Zoom, with the computer that you are using, please allow a couple extra minutes as there is a small amount of time needed to log in and get set up using the audio and video controls.

This year, the State mandated trainings on Harassment Prevention (AB 1661) and Public Service Ethics (AB 1234) will be offered as webinars separate from the Planning Commissioners Academy. Attendees will receive a single use coupon code for complimentary registration for a future AB 1234 and AB 1661 training (must be used before August 31, 2021). Trainings are already scheduled and open for registration in April, and one more round will be scheduled in the summer. For more information contact mdunn@cacities.org.

Please note, sessions and speakers are subject to change due to unforseen circumstances.
