Plan Like a Green Beret - the P.A.C.E. Way
In the emergency management world, “being lucky” is not a plan. Sometimes you do get lucky and your emergency management and response plans and procedures work just as you thought they would. However, often things don’t go as planned. As the famous philosopher Mike Tyson once said, “Everyone has a plan ’till they get punched in the mouth.” To help the Army’s Green Berets prepare for all contingencies during a mission, they use the P.A.C.E. planning method. This webinar will review in detail the P.A.C.E. planning method.

Meeting Management for Planning Commissions
Making sure your planning commission meetings run smoothly is important so that the members feel they are making effective use of the time they volunteer for the township. A well-run meeting is also important for the picture it presents to the public who attend to either learn about the issues or who are there to submit comments on the proceedings. This webinar will address best practices that will help your planning commission meetings be productive without wasting time.
