About The National Charrette Institute

The National Charrette Institute (NCI) is a nonprofit educational institution. We teach the transformative process of Dynamic Planning to create healthy community plans.

We help people build community capacity for collaboration to create healthy community plans. We teach professionals and community leaders the art and science of Dynamic Planning, a holistic, collaborative planning process that harnesses the talents and energies of all interested parties to create and support a feasible plan. And we advance the fields of community planning and public involvement through research and publications.

Bill Lennertz, Steve Coyle and Aarin Lutzenhiser co-founded NCI in order to create the first professional education venue for the Charrette and the Dynamic Planning Process. Bill Lennertz, NCI’s Executive Director, is leading the organization in new research efforts, program development, and teaching methodologies. His experience as manager of more than 150 New Urbanist Charrettes is the foundation for the Dynamic Planning curriculum.
