PMPEI Seeking New Instructors

Now in its 25th year of providing high quality, in-depth courses in planning and zoning, the PA Municipal Planning Education Institute (PMPEI) is the PA Chapter’s major outreach to local planning commissioners, zoning hearing boards and zoning administrators, and elected officials.

If you would like to share your knowledge and experience with local officials consider becoming an Instructor in PMPEI’s Planning and Zoning Course Program.  A “Train-the-Trainer” class is scheduled for new instructors to teach the PMPEI Course in Zoning Administration. Train-the Trainer prepares instructors to teach PMPEI’s courses consistently throughout the Commonwealth.

The dates for the three-day intensive training program are Friday and Saturday, May 18 and 19, and Saturday, June 2, 2018, at the Centre Region Council of Governments building in State College, PA. The registration fee is $150 and covers instruction, materials, all breaks, lunches, and a Friday night meal.

PMPEI instructors receive compensation for teaching, travel, plus meal and incidental expenses. Teaching assignments are made so instructors will be teaching at locations convenient to where they live.

Citizen and professional planners, and allied professionals, with a minimum of five years’ experience in planning and zoning in Pennsylvania are eligible to become PMPEI Certified Instructors. If you are committed to planning education and would like to become an instructor contact Stan Lembeck, AICP, (814) 237-2382, or email slembeck34@gmail.com for an application, or more information about PMPEI and the training program.
