Building the planning profession together.

Let's face it. We had to change a lot this year: the way we work, the way we think, and the way we plan. 

Both as a profession and as individuals, we continue to evolve. That is why we have chosen this theme for the 2021 APPI Conference, which will be an opportunity for planning professionals and students to reflect on how recent events have changed our professional and personal lives. We will share stories of how we adapted, what we learned, and how we envision the future of our profession.

So what will our conference look like this year?

Given the uncertainty of social gathering restrictions and recognizing APPI’s vast geographical jurisdiction, the 2021 Conference will be hosted virtually.  The Institute is committed to exploring interactive and innovative opportunities that will provide virtual delegates with learning opportunities that are aligned with their professional development needs as well as well as meaningful and valuable network connections.

What is the APPI Annual Conference all about?

Our annual conference seeks to bring together the insights and experience of hundreds of planning professionals across the region. Organizers choose a different theme each year that explores the ever-present political, economic, environmental, and personal challenges of planning.  Presentations, panels, keynotes, sessions, and networking opportunities provide each delegate with a learning experience that continues to impact their work throughout the year.
