APA MN invites you to 2017 APA MN State Planners Conference
Between the email blasts, and the Planning Minnesota newsletter, you have probably seen a great deal of info about the APA MN State Planners Conference Sept. 27-29 in Mankato, at the Verizon Center. And finally, conference registration is open. We are pleased to be offering a diverse array of sessions, speed sessions, mobile tours, and events. Our Keynote Speaker will be David Schultz from Hamline University. Finally, you will have an opportunity to meet the chapter Award winners for the year, and many students from the planning schools will be attending the conference. In addition to the brochure, the bios of the presenters are also available on the website.
