The PBCD Newsletter features original and reprinted articles, letters, case studies, photos, announcements from PBCD members, individuals and organizations around the country. 

Do you have an idea or original content, for publication? Did you attend an exciting, workshop or professional development recently? Have innovative planning ideas? How about your opinion on the state of ongoing planning? Here's your chance to be heard. All submissions are subject to editorial review and edit. Illustrations with submissions are appreciated and are worth a thousand words!
