NPC 1978 - New Orleans

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."

The Louisiana Chapter executive committee has been working to update the Strategic Plan for our chapter. This process is required every five years. A draft of the document has been posted where you may read and comment on it. We encourage you to review this 11 page document within the next month so that we can make revisions in time for the next executive committee meeting where it can be adopted.
