Partnering with APA Iowa to Offer CM Events

APA Iowa is a registered CM Provider through the American Planning Association and provides this service so that AICP members have ability to receive CM credits throughout Iowa, including APA Iowa events and conferences. APA Iowa frequently partners with other groups and organizations to co-sponsor training events so those events can qualify for CM credits.  To partner with other groups to offer CM credits, APA Iowa must follow the guidelines set forth in the CM Provider Toolkit and the chapter has adopted this policy to provide guidance for such situations.  If your organization is looking to co-sponsor an event with APA Iowa, please review the policy and contact the David Wilwerding, Professional Development Officer at 515-727-7775 or dwilwerding@cityofjohnston.com with any questions.
