More than 4,300 APA members and leaders and policy makers from planning, government, higher education, and more were drawn to the concentrated planning knowledge and expertise at the Phoenix Convention Center during APA’s 2016 National Planning Conference.


What Happened?

Our Conference Coverage page will link you to event highlights and social and traditional media coverage of APA’s four action-packed days in Phoenix.

Log CM Credits

AICP members may log the Certification Maintenance credits they earned at NPC 16 via the APA website or the APA mobile app (available for Apple and Android devices). Make sure you record all the credits you deserve! Browse the conference program for CM-eligible sessions or workshops you haven’t recorded.


Get Session Recordings

APA will release conference session recordings (PowerPoint presentations plus audio) as they become available, starting in mid-May. Recordings will be listed and accessible on APA’s On-Demand Education webpages. (Note: not all 2016 National Planning Conference sessions were recorded.)

Bonus for conference registrants: Anyone who paid full price for the 2016 National Planning Conference (i.e. who did not receive a student, new professional, life, or retired member registration discount) will have free access to every 2016 session recording for a full year after its release.
