Conferences and Meetings


Over the last several Annual Conferences, the APA Virginia Chapter has highlighted resiliency, innovation, integration and evaluation, and future communities. For 2018, we will turn the focus inward on us as planners (including local elected and appointed officials). Planners play a pivotal role as agents of change in their communities. We serve our communities as: advocates, policy setters, designers, environmentalists, preservationists, engineers, data analysts and code enforcers. Planners, more so than any other profession, have a “mountain of influence” over the planning for and realization of a community’s potential. Planners are shaping the future of the Commonwealth every day.
