Cyburbia is a friendly big tent, where we share our experiences and thoughts about urban planning practice, the built environment, planning adjacent topics, and anything else that comes to mind. No ads, no spam, and it's free. It's easy to join!
I've taken several of the CUED courses. The quality is mixed. Real Estate Redevelopment and Development Finance were very good. NDC has some excellent ED finance courses as well. I'm not sold on AEDC's courses.
Another option might be national conferences. CUED has an annual ED Summit in February. The Americn Planning Association conference in March has some useful sessions.
