The California Planning Roundtable (CPR) is an organization of experienced planning professionals who are members of the American Planning Association (APA). Membership is balanced between the public and private sectors and between Northern and Southern California.

CPR is committed to enhancing essential planning skills for practicing planners to promote effective planning and develop leadership and management skills. To accomplish this goal, CPR will offer interactive sessions and workshops at the APA California conference and other venues on core skills that may not be taught in typical planning curriculums, but are usually "lessons learned" through direct work experience. Possible workshop topics include strategic thinking, communication skills, project management, and effective community engagement and education. Other topics could be selected from the AICP Core Competencies developed by the American Planning Association (see https://www.planning.org/aicp/commoncore/). AICP CM credit will also be sought for these workshops.
