2019 Administrators Conference & New Chairs School

The ACSP is excited to announce the 2019 Administrators Conference will be locally hosted by the University of Minnesota, Humphrey School of Public Affairs. Their Urban and Regional Planning Program has long had a presence and strong engagement with ACSP and we're honored their planning academy has offered to host this important event.

The University of Minnesota is centrally located within the Twin Cities metropolitan region and is located adjacent to downtown Minneapolis and near the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. The University's urban campus is highly walkable and well-connected via bus and rail transit. The campus location on the Mississippi River is visually stunning and offers a uniquely urban setting that is connected to the natural amenities that are so central to the high quality of life in the community and the state.
