The Connecticut Chapter of the American Planning Association represents 400 professionals from various technical disciplines.  Given the ongoing slow economic growth of Connecticut, this is an important time to reinforce our state's core values, accelerate our pace of work and build up a team approach to problem-solving. Planners are among the state's very best facilitators and community consensus-builders with an important role to play in this process.
