We are very disappointed to announce that the 2020 National Planning Conference, originally scheduled for April 25-28 in Houston, is cancelled in line with recommendations by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control to limit effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Registered attendees have the option of receiving a full refund or maintaining a credit that can be applied to other APA programs, services, or membership renewal through September 30, 2021. We’ll follow up shortly with additional information on future online learning opportunities that will facilitate the same high level of professional development for planners and the planning community that you’ve come to expect from APA.
As you focus on meeting the needs of your communities, we will turn our attention to the substantial challenge of keeping APA and the planning community strong in a rapidly changing world. We’ll have more to say about this in the coming days.
We know this is a trying time for everyone – not just professionally, but also personally. On behalf of the APA Board of Directors and staff, we thank all of you for your patience and support as we navigate the complexities of this unprecedented event. We are especially grateful to the NPC Planning Committee, and our local partners in Houston; please know we share your disappointment and honor your many contributions.
Kurt Christiansen, FAICP, APA President and Joel Albizo, FASAE, APA CEO
