2020 APA WA/OAPA Joint Conference: Growing Virtually Together

October 14–16, 2020

This year’s theme is Growing Together Virtually, recognizing the importance and challenges of planning for evolving communities, large and small, in these challenging and polarizing times. The conference will provide the opportunity to share, learn from each other, and grow as professionals.

The challenges before us are significant:

  • How can we promote diversity, inclusion and equity in our practice as planners and our communities?
  • How can we help communities rebound after COVID-19?

Here are the key details:

  • We’re going online for 2020! The 2020 Joint Washington-Oregon APA Chapter Conference will be held virtually, on October 14–16, 2020. Stay tuned for more details on schedules, speakers, and registration.
  • In October 2021, we’re looking forward to following up with a joint in-person conference in Vancouver.
  • The theme for the conference, Growing Together, will span two years: virtually this year, and (hopefully) in-person next year.
  • The deadline to submit a session has been extended to July 19, 2020. The conference Call for Sessions has been updated to reflect our new format.

Our goal is to deliver a timely, highly engaging, informative, and worthwhile experience online this fall. We look forward to your timely topic session proposals!
