Planning Community of Practice

The Planning Community of Practice (PCoP) is comprised of more than 1,000 planners from each Corps District, Division, Research Laboratories, and Headquarters. Led by the Headquarters PCoP Deputy, the PCoP ensures that USACE planners have the tools, training, and resources they need to successfully deliver water resources solution for the Nation.
