Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Today your Chapter Executive Committee sent a letter to Mr. Jim Drinan, Executive Director of APA asking him to consider New Orleans as the venue for the 2018 National Planning Conference. This opportunity arose after indecision occurred in Florida, between Miami and Orlando. The Louisiana Chapter is simply requesting to host the 2018 conference in New Orleans. The letter is a PDF file which you may view here.

Dear Lydia,

Just writing today to let you know that the APA Board of Directors met this morning and selected New Orleans as the site of the 2018 National Planning Conference. Congratulations! Thanks for your participation in this process, I know the report put together by the Chapter provided very valuable information to the Board in their deliberations.
