APPI Conference

This year's conference will explore how planning is evolving and will continue to evolve in the future and how to navigate the uncertainty. The expected outcomes of the conference include introducing participants to new and exciting ways that can help planners learn how to build future-ready communities, while  providing tangible and technical elements that can be utilized in our day-to-day lives. Professional planners and related professionals will present unique, creative and unconventional discussions on how we, together, can navigate an uncertain future.
