The California Chapter presents a statewide conference annually that provide networking and educational opportunities for its members. These popular conferences attract planning professionals from throughout California, the United States, and around the world.


Packed with practical information that will empower you to energize projects and ensure success, this is the biggest and most diverse regional APA conference ever. It all begins on October 20 at the center of planning and legislation, Sacramento “At the Confluence.”

You’ll network with key planners — planners who shaped the past and are creating the future. You’ll learn from national and state experts who will divulge proven strategies.

At the State APA 2001 Conference, you will be inspired by keynote speakers like Speaker Pro Tem of the State Assembly Fred Keeley, and National Public Radio’s Susan Stamberg. You will be stimulated by nearly 1,000 of your colleagues in planning and related professions. You will learn innovative strategies that you can implement immediately.
