The CDPA Resource Library is intended to assist our members in furthering their professional development. AICP continuing education credits are available and indicated below. In addition, the training packages may qualify for local planning and zoning board officials training (please check with your local community to ensure credits can be applied).

Chapter sections have been building a catalogue of CM training CD-ROMs.  Sections are making these resources available to chapter members.  For more information on available training courses and how to request them, please see the following information.
