Susan tends to be hit or miss with her presentations.
Tuesday, December 4, 2018, 2:30 p.m. CST
Again, Chuck is spot-on.
Tuesday, December 4, 2018, 2:27 p.m. CST
Chuck is always a good listen-to guy. I could probably give this presentation by now, but it' still worth hearing. Maybe someday we'll get people to listen and DO.
Tuesday, December 4, 2018, 2:21 p.m. CST
Erie is just starting this program. This enables us to see how to get started from essentially nothing.
Monday, December 3, 2018, 5:01 p.m. CST

Interesting way to portray ethics discussions
Tuesday, October 30, 2018, 9:12 a.m. CDT
I enjoyed this speaker and presentation. It was a nice reminder that sometimes the smallest and most affordable projects can have the biggest impact.
Tuesday, October 30, 2018, 9:10 a.m. CDT
This was my favorite workshop of the conference. Fun but also informative. The speakers did a great job and the project was a fabulous example of how neighboring communities can work together on planning related issues and create a trail network throughout their area.
Tuesday, October 30, 2018, 9:09 a.m. CDT
I really enjoyed this presentation and the very simply and proactive ways we can look to improve our communities.
Tuesday, October 30, 2018, 9:07 a.m. CDT
Good overview of zoning and the PA MPC. I enjoyed breaking out into groups and reviewing the different scenarios.
Tuesday, October 30, 2018, 9:04 a.m. CDT
It was really neat and interesting to see how a similar Township in terms of size and scale was using drones to access parking needs and where overparking occurs.
Tuesday, October 30, 2018, 9:02 a.m. CDT
It was interesting to hear about the Greenway Planning going on in Allegheny County. I had not yet heard about it and it seems like a great thing for my Township to be a part of.
Tuesday, October 30, 2018, 8:52 a.m. CDT
Interesting to hear Tom Murphy speak on the topic of intentionality and what that meant for Pittsburgh and other cities.
Tuesday, October 30, 2018, 8:51 a.m. CDT
Very interesting discussion on how to appropriately handle certain tough situations we are put in as public servants from time to time. I enjoyed the skits and scenarios!
Monday, October 29, 2018, 11:52 a.m. CDT
Thursday, October 25, 2018, 2:13 p.m. CDT
Excellent legal speaker. I learned a lot about planning law in a very short amount of time. Including the basic framework of the law, beyond just the court rulings, was very helpful.
Thursday, October 25, 2018, 2:11 p.m. CDT
An interactive workshop to look at how planning can play a role in helping with the opioid epidemic.
Thursday, October 25, 2018, 12:06 p.m. CDT
Power packed presentations work well on a theme.
Thursday, October 25, 2018, 12:04 p.m. CDT
Good topic, but may have worked better as a round table where everyone was able to chime in with their experience. Maybe in the networking lounge.
Thursday, October 25, 2018, 12:03 p.m. CDT
Dynamic speaker on planning who was also an elected official.
Thursday, October 25, 2018, 12:01 p.m. CDT
Well organized session. Using a script to read ethics sessions allowed more people to participate in the session.
Thursday, October 25, 2018, 11:28 a.m. CDT
Refreshing. New does not necessarily mean progress. Great comparison of traditional top down investment (orderly but dumb) vs bottom up investment (chaotic but smart). More please.
Thursday, October 25, 2018, 11:24 a.m. CDT
Great application of tactile urbanism. I appreciate the incremental, experiential, and lean approach.
Thursday, October 25, 2018, 11:21 a.m. CDT
Best ethics session yet. Very informative.
Thursday, October 25, 2018, 11:19 a.m. CDT
Helpful to see how peers interpret zoning.
Thursday, October 25, 2018, 11:18 a.m. CDT

Good speaker. Great experience.

Good sample of county level historic preservation initiatives in Pennsylvania.
Thursday, October 25, 2018, 8:19 a.m. CDT
Charles Marohn has an interesting message which planners should consider. However, this is the third time I've heard him speak in the past 6 - 8 years. Unfortunately, he has not varied or updated his message since the first time I've heard him speak. Additionally, he should have tailored his presentation to Erie or, perhaps, another Western Pennsylvania community.
Thursday, October 25, 2018, 8:13 a.m. CDT
Excellent ethics session. Even though the speakers were not planners, they demonstrated excellent knowledge of the AICP Code of Ethics and provided a good case study.
Thursday, October 25, 2018, 7:47 a.m. CDT
The approach of having session participants read sections from the Municipal Planning code and then discuss case studies was a very effective method of presenting what, for many, can be a dry subject. There was some very good discussion in this session. One of the best sessions I've attended to meet the Law requirements for CM.

Interesting perspective on thinking about how to partner with universities
