The 2017 Master Citizen Planner (MCP) Webinar Series is designed to offer participants the latest updates and information on current topics. Using Zoom Webinar, MSU Extension educators will provide an overview of topics of interest to planning and zoning officials. Webinars are the third Thursday of February, April, June, August, October and December from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Each session is available individually or participants can register for all six at once. MCPs will earn one hour of continuing education per webinar.
The fifth session will be: Understanding and Planning for the Shared Economy - Andy Northrop; The Sharing Economy, characterized by the sharing and reuse of excess goods and services, has spawned opportunities for leveraging assets and fostering business ventures, thus leading to a new wave of entrepreneurs in the 21st century. As a result, ventures, such as ridesharing, shared housing, and other shared services are moving communities to rethink (and redesign) policies and plans. This program will address a number of Sharing Economy business models that have empowered entrepreneurship and discuss a number of policies communities can take to foster this growing trend. Industry, such as travel and tourism, will be used as an example.
The cost per webinar will be $10 for MCPs and $20 for regular registrants.
Registration is available online. The last date for online registration is December 20, 2017.
