Federal Planning Division Workshop

2021 Federal Planning Division Training Workshop


The FPD Virtual Workshop, Full Steam Ahead: Putting Resiliency to the Test, is scheduled for May 11 – 13, 2021.

In an effort to ensure everyone's safety and preserve their ability to participate amid the corona virus pandemic, this year's workshop will be entirely virtual. The theme and session topics for this year's workshop were inspired by the current challenges we all are facing, and our propensity to continue moving forward.
