MPCA Corner

Mentorship for Maryland's Citizen Planners

MPCA Vertical

The Maryland Planning Commissioners Association (MPCA) is recruiting mentors to share their experience, wisdom, and lessons learned with new Planning Commissioners and Boards of Appeals Members. The MPCA's Strategic Plan commits the organization to develop training and other resources for knowledge sharing, best practices, and effective processes. The MPCA Executive Committee believes our best resource is the dedicated and experienced citizen planners who volunteer their time and energy to community development and sustainable growth throughout Maryland.

A 2021 MPCA initiative is to establish a mentoring program for our members comprised of members. The program will include content experts willing to respond to email requests on specific planning areas, such as comprehensive planning, site plan review, and Robert's Rules of Order. It will also include those interested in providing a more holistic mentoring experience -- one for which the MPCA would curate and establish mentor/mentee relationships.

If you are interested in learning more or volunteering as a mentor, please complete the short survey linked below or contact Joe Griffiths, Local Assistance and Training Manager for the Maryland Department of Planning, at
