APA Policy and Advocacy Conference

Includes Planner's Day on Capitol Hill

The American Planning Association's digital conference will include advocacy and training opportunities with insight from members of Congress.

The American Planning Association (APA) will be holding their 2020 Policy and Advocacy Conference digitally on September 23 - 24 for the opportunity to engage with elected officials on topics such as infrastructure, recovery and stimulus, housing and zoning reform, equitable economies and climate change.

Registration is open to all who wish to participate with early bird registration now through September 1. Early registration guarantees a meeting with a congressional office for APA's virtual Planner's Day on Capitol Hill. APA states they will arrange time for participants to have meaningful conversations, in small groups, with legislators and their staff about critical planning issues and the federal support planners need to create equitable, prosperous communities.

Registration also includes:
• Live sessions, including keynote speakers, remarks from elected officials and members of Congress, networking opportunities, and topical listening sessions
• Access to recordings in APA Learn for a year
• Advocacy training opportunities
• Guaranteed access at no additional fee to the historically sold-out post-November election webinar that provides analysis and opportunities for Lame Duck congressional session advocacy
