CALL FOR CONFERENCE CONTENT
The Atlantic Planners Institute (API) is proud to welcome planners and planning champions from across Atlantic Canada to St. John’s for the 2019 annual conference from October 2–4, 2019.
The deadline for proposals is Monday, April 30, 2019.
THE CONFERENCE THEME—REFLECTION
In 2019, the Canadian Institute of Planners celebrates 100 years of advancing planning across Canada. For planners in Atlantic Canada, this anniversary is an opportunity for us to reflect on our contribution to the communities we serve. It’s also a good time to look ahead and think about how our profession can continue to help those communities face new challenges in this rapidly changing world. Sometimes, what is old becomes new again. Are planners caught in a cycle of repackaging tried and true methods, or are we creating new and innovative approaches that truly advance our ability to help communities anticipate, embrace and adjust to change? How can we deliver the kinds of programs, plans and policies that advance planning in Atlantic Canada? What tools do we need to be able to effectively evaluate our work to ensure success?
