Overview

1) How the proposed session relates to the conference theme:

This session addresses “Plan Big” through planning by

·        Allowing networking for Counties so that policies and codes that apply to all of us are discussed and potentially strategized.

·        Getting and giving updates on new and upcoming issues and legislation

·        Discussion on technologies, innovative products, and other regulatory changes being instituted by departments

·        Law updates related to rural and county planning

 2) How it meets a specific planning-related training objective:

The session will help Planners to learn about new or upcoming issues by receiving updates from both the IAC and from the County Planning Directors. There will be information shared about planning issues that are going to be upcoming for Counties in the next legislative session and about what happened during the last.  There will also be an update on any recent case law.

 3) How it will offer a professionally relevant learning experience for a planner with at least 4 years of experience:

There will be information shared about planning issues that are going to be upcoming for Counties in the next legislative session and about what happened during the last.  The updates generally include any changes being proposed to planning legislation, changes being proposed to legislation that may be planning related or affect planning, and other legislation that may have an effect on county laws or budgets.  There will also be an update on new case law.  There will also be an opportunity to listen and share about new and innovative planning concepts, technologies and plans from all of the Counties, Tribes, and other Planners present.

 4) What you want the attendees to learn from this session: 

This session will give people who attend information on what is currently going on in counties, especially new issues that they are handling and new technologies that they are using.  Additionally, new and upcoming issues affecting county planning and counties will be discussed.  Furthermore, they should walk away with an update on changes to/new regulations and recent case law that directly affects county planning as well as an update to upcoming legislation that may affect counties
