NPC 1978 planner's riverboat tour

The first time a riverboat load of planners rode on the Mississippi River was in 1978. The SS President was loaded with 3,000 planners for the welcoming reception of a lifetime. Three bands, great Louisiana cuisine and lots of watering holes on each deck resulted in a "three hour cruise" that was talked about for decades. It was the National AIP Conference, held at the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans before the American Institute of Planners changed their name to APA. The theme was "Making Planning Work."
