Planning Horizons


The Office of Workforce Development coordinates an educational forum every other month (as well as adding occasional special sessions) called Planning Horizons. Speakers for this forum are selected from both within Caltrans and the Planning community. If you would like to submit a comment, make a suggestion for future topics, or would like your name added to the mailing list for future Planning Horizons notices, please contact Jeffrey Ng.


Session time is 10:00 – 11:30, unless otherwise stated.
