For planners, Atlanta is a real eye-opener. While you're in town, take time to explore the transformation of the BeltLine, the revitalization of Olympic venues, and the legacy of Olmsted's parks. You might even be there for the inauguration of the new Atlanta Streetcar. And with the children's museum, Buckhead galleries and shopping, 100-plus golf courses, and the Braves' home stand at Turner Field, there's something for everyone in the family to enjoy. In fact, there must be at least 50 fun things to see and do in Atlanta.
Every year APA introduces more features and programs to make the conference better than ever. New for 2014:
- Clinics for Emerging Professionals, advice on tough topics from experienced planners
- Deep Dives, expanded sessions on emerging areas of planning, with hands-on exercises
- Deep Dive Sessions on emerging areas of planning, with hands-on exercises and interaction
- APA Learning Theater, demos of new technologies you'll wonder how you lived without
The full program for APA's National Planning Conference will be posted next month. Meanwhile, take a sneak peek at some of the highlights. Feel as if you need a scorecard to keep track of all the terminology? You've got it — a go-to glossary.
