Welcoming Remarks

4

(Note: Am incorporating comments here that were originally made on the entire program, but had to be deleted to enter each session separately. Not a significant concern, but as a result of this change, was also unable to obtain all 8 AICP credits even though present all day and entire program because of revisions in timing of individual segments.) Overall, an excellent program in a stimulating location. Numerous sessions, some concurrent. Scheduling had to be adjusted a bit. Among personally most valuable sessions attended included keynote by Paz Gomez, Sustainability panel and presentations by Renee Yarmy and Chad Reese, AICP Code of Ethics & Professional Conduct session led by Brian Mooney (and subsequent roundtable discussion), Wildlife Refuge Planning presentation by Jill Terp, and Historic Liberty Station panel with Bill Anderson, Marcela Escobar-Eck, and Mark Steele, and particularly the follow-up walking tour led by Mark Steele. Also appreciated opportunities for Q&A and discussion, and ample opportunities for interaction and networking with other participants. Special thanks to David Leonard as main organizer and others who contributed!

Speakers showed little prior coordination. Not one of three speakers bothered to include a single image of the plan. They were similarly ill-prepared to answer thoughtful audience questions. Disappointing. Speaking as a Washingtonian, it's sessions like this that earn DC it's "pointy=headed bureaucrats" moniker...
