A Note From APA Leadership

The format and locale for the 2021 National Planning Conference has been confirmed — NPC21 will be fully digital, May 5-7, 2021. Due to the ongoing pandemic and COVID-19 public gathering restrictions currently in place in Boston, NPC21 will take place as a virtual event.
 
While we are disappointed to miss all that Boston has to offer, we feel this decision is the best option for maintaining the health of our attendees and staff, and allows us to focus fully on planning an energizing and immersive digital conference experience, built around today's needs. We are very grateful to the NPC Planning Committee and our local partners in Boston for their time, work, and expertise dedicated to the conference and look forward to bringing a bit of Boston to NPC21 online.
 
The NPC21 Call for Reviewers and Call for Proposals are both open now. We're looking for new and diverse voices, unique insights, and innovative, practical approaches that enable the planning community to successfully adapt to a rapidly changing world. With new ways to get involved, it's easier than ever to participate in the conference program — we invite you to join us in building and experiencing NPC21.
 

Sincerely,

Kurt Christiansen, FAICP, APA President

Joel Albizo, FASAE, APA CEO
