Conference Theme: Innovation – Planning on the Edge
This year, organizers are looking for sessions that break the mold. Tell us how you are innovating and experimenting. Share your successes and your frustrations in your efforts to develop new codes, meet housing challenges, enable diverse transportation options, connect with underrepresented residents, apply new technology, and more. We know that innovation happens everywhere, not just in big cities, and we encourage you to share your stories from your community.
