Cross-Chapter Online Conference

This 2020 Multi-Chapter event will be one of the largest APA events of the year with six chapters in the partnership. On your “to-do list” are: session submissions, sponsorship opportunities, awards programs and, of course, CM opportunities. Dates are now the week of October 5, 2020, with the idea that sessions will be spread over the entire week to make it easy for you “drop in” and participate via Zoom and still maintain a relatively normal work schedule. Sessions will be available after the event for practical use and learning opportunities.


Sponsorship Opportunities

The full costs of producing the virtual conference have been underwritten by Texas-based sponsors. This means all subsequent sponsorships from all six participating state chapters will be divided equally and distributed to each chapter for future member services. What a fabulous opportunity for your corporate, agency or individual sponsorship dollars to be precisely targeted to promoting the practice of planning in Louisiana, and enriching our members with new skills and knowledge!
