Students' Opportunity to Impact Policy, Deliver their Planning Message, and Grow their Network

Encourage your students to sign up and join practicing city planners, private industry planners, lawmakers, and other planning advocates at APA's Policy and Advocacy Conference, Sept. 24-26, in Washington D.C.

Students who attend APA's annual Policy and Advocacy Conference obtain practical, hands-on advocacy training uniquely suited for emerging planning professionals. Attendees from across the country will gather for three days of networking, and discuss federal, state, and local policy challenges facing planners today.

The intimate setting, accompanied by the attendance of potential employers, the opportunity to speak with Congressional Representatives during Planners' Day on Capitol Hill, and exposure to practicing planners from all backgrounds, make this one of the premier networking opportunities for future planners.

Register for Less: Students members of APA automatically save $100 on conference registration. Register today.
