Call for Presentations:

Download the conference session proposal form at here.

The submission deadline is Friday, February 13, 2015.

Conference Session Tracks:

Sustainability and innovation in planning. 
This year, we’d like to emphasize ways to tackle sustainability-related issues and ways in which new or innovative ideas have helped in the office or in the field.  Desired topics include: new/changing technologies, “greening” your city, improving an outdated code, unique collaborations, environmental concerns, etc.

Back to the basics. 
Sessions in this track will help keep us on target as planning professionals and remind us of “the basics” learned in school (that we may or may not always follow) and the ideals we strive toward.  The committee is seeking proposals from planners, public officials, developers, and other planning-related professionals.  Desired topics include: comprehensive planning process reboots, code enforcement, signage, water, changing population and demographics, law, ethics, public engagement, transportation, land use, etc.

Submission Requirements:

You are encouraged to submit multiple presentation proposals, however, each proposal must be submitted using a separate form.  Download the conference session proposal form at www.kapa.org/special_events.html. Send all proposal submissions in word document format to Megan Chan mchan@gscplanning.com by Friday, February 13, 2015 for consideration.
