Announcing The Charrette Handbook, 2nd ed.

NCI is thrilled to announce the second edition of The Charrette Handbook will be launched at the annual APA conference in Atlanta next week. This is the first update to The Charrette Handbook in seven years. The second edition of The Charrette Handbook is a complete desktop reference for planning and conducting charrettes. The new edition brings this essential reference manual up-to-date with the NCI Charrette System™ training curriculum, including how to leverage social media and conduct charrettes on a budget, and adds examples of how charrettes can be used in public health partnerships.

 “The charrette process – as clearly taught in this important book – is the most effective tool, bar none, for reaching consensus around placemaking.” -Jeff Speck, AICP, author, Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time 

To celebrate the publishing of our second-edition book, co-author Bill Lennertz will have a book signing on Sunday, April 27th at 12pm at the APA conference in Atlanta. If you are attending the conference, this is a great opportunity to purchase a copy and meet Bill in person. In addition to the book signing, Bill will be presenting a session along with Charles Green, Health Communication Specialist at the CDC: “The New Charrette Handbook, Health, and Public Planning” Monday, April 28th at 4:00pm. 

The Charrette Handbook is now available for pre-order on our website; we will begin delivery May 1.
