Irving Hand Award: Win $2,500 for Professional Development!

Once again the PA Chapter is looking for applications for the Irving Hand Excellence in Planning Professional Development Award, which provides up to $2,500 for education/professional development for planners.  In these tight budget times, who couldn’t use an outside funding source for training?  Planners can self-nominate, and the basics of the application are a resume, eligibility narrative, explanation of the course of study, and two letters of recommendation.  Qualifying activities include graduate courses or specialized training.  I was fortunate enough to receive the funding for 2013 for the purposes of mediation training, which I have found quite useful for community planning.

‘The revised deadline for applying is September 14th.  Please see the attachments or the Chapter’s updated website for additional information.  The application form is after the jump.
