Time is now to register for the 2012 APA-Iowa Conference

The Iowa Chapter of the American Planning Association is pleased to announce this year’s annual conference.  It will be held October 31 – November 2 at the Gateway Hotel and Conference Center in Ames, Iowa.  This year’s conference theme, Emerging Planning Paradigms, will focus on the latest trends in planning practice.  Some of the tipics will include regional planning and cooperation, energy planning, sustainability, and politics in planning.  With nearly 20 sessions, the conference will provide many opportunities for AICP-certified planners to earn CM credits, including those elusive law and ethics credits.

No BLUZ next week

How can you have the BLUZ when you’re in Council Bluffs?  I’ve come to the conclusion that you just can’t!  There will be no BLUZ next week while the APA-Iowa Annual Conference, “Sustainably Rebuilding the Heartland,” is taking place in Council Bluffs.  You still have time to join us next week.  Simply click here and go to the conference registration packet.

The BLUZ will return November 1 with the steel gray skies of late autumn.
