Greetings -
Please see below for information on an online webinar offered by
the International Division of the APA providing 1.5 legal CM credits

International Comparison of Growth Management Legislation
Sponsored by APA International Division
September 17, 2009  |  1.5 CM credits (legal category pending)
This online seminar sponsored by APA-ID will offer an overview of
the legal frameworks for New Zealand's RMA and Washington State's GMA.
The two pieces of legislation have notable similarities, but their
application in both planning practice and judicial processes are quite
different. As such, the event may be quite interesting to members in
both countries, especially those working in the "growth management
states."  This webinar will be offered jointly by APA-ID and the New
Zealand Planning Institute, so participants from both countries will
attend the online webinar, and an application for this event to qualify
for the 1.5 hours of CM credit in the legal category is pending.
The presentation will generally include:
- An overview of the two statutes
- Planning processes under the legal frameworks enabled under the
- Involvement of the judiciary in planning decisions
- A summary of planning, growth, economic, and legislative challenges

Washington GMA perspectives.  Ed McGuire, AICP, an attorney, planner,
and former Central Puget Sound Growth Management Hearings Board member
serving the Seattle area from 1996 to 2009, will present the US
perspective.  Daniel Clay, a partner with Minter, Ellison, Rudd, and
Watts lawyers focusing on resource management law in New Zealand.
