April 25-28, 2020 — Houston
APA's 2020 National Planning Conference is the premier planning event of the year. NPC20 will bring together the hottest topics, the latest tools, and the leading voices with something new to say.
With hundreds of sessions and cutting-edge presentations on offer, you can dig deeper into your specialty or explore new topics.
We bring together thousands of planners, planning commissioners, appointed and elected officials, and students to discuss fresh ideas and innovative planning. The National Planning Conference is the best place to find a mentor, connect with colleagues, and meet planners from around the world.
This year's program includes numerous networking opportunities and the Career Zone's popular Mentor Match, Resume Clinic, and Employer Connection Job Fair.
NPC20 Registration Includes:
- All sessions
- Opening and closing keynotes
- Exhibit Hall Happy Hour
- One food truck lunch voucher
