APA California is returning to an in-person conference in 2022! The Orange Section Conference Host Committee is excited to invite you to come to Anaheim next October. The conference theme is: “Celebrating CommUNITY.” We’ve missed the camaraderie of seeing colleagues from across the state, so the 2022 conference will be a celebration of coming together. The theme recognizes the hard-won victories and achievements in planning that required collaboration, cooperation, and creative problem solving to navigate the last few years.

Are you planning to attend the 2022 conference?


By the time October rolls around, it will have been over three years since the last in-person Chapter conference. It’s difficult to predict how the pandemic will affect in-person attendance. From changes in training budgets, to new workload demands, and general health and safety concerns, we understand many factors could influence decisions concerning participation. The Committee wants to ensure we’re sufficiently accommodating the needs and interests of all potential attendees as well as we can. Please complete this short online survey to tell us whether you’re currently planning to join us in Anaheim.



What do you want to see at the 2022 conference?

Are you interested in virtual sessions using hybrid technology? Would you like to participate in more interactive sessions? Do you want to learn about specific planning topics? Are you most looking forward to networking and reconnecting with planners? Add your input to this online Mural Board and tell us what you want to experience at the conference!

Are you interested in exhibiting, sponsoring, or advertising at the 2022 Conference?

The Conference Host Committee is busy defining what sort of opportunities you’ll have to tell our membership about all the great things you’re accomplishing and your plans for the future. We anticipate offering a variety of ways for you to tell your story, with sponsorship and advertising levels available for as low as $300! Also, for the first time since 2019, we’re thrilled to be hosting an in-person exhibit hall! Opportunities to sponsor and support a conference program include the opening reception, opening keynote, closing keynote, APA Awards Ceremony, Diversity Summit, Student Awards Luncheon, mobile workshops, and much more.

The full exhibitor and sponsorship brochure will be announced soon. To add your company’s name to the Interest List to receive conference exhibitor and sponsorship updates, please email Deene Alongi at [email protected].
