Carson City, NV, United States


The 2017 APA Nevada Chapter State Conference will be held on October 2-4, 2017 in Carson City at the Carson Tahoe Hotel. A preconference workshop titled Fundamentals of Economic Development 3.0 Workshop will also be held on October 1, 2017, at the same location.  

This year’s conference theme is Betting on Nevada’s Future.  Planning is about understanding changes and identifying new and innovative tools and techniques to adapt to those conditions.  As the future unfolds and changes in politics, demographics, technology, environment, growth, economic conditions and public health transform our State, planners need to be able to develop innovative solutions in response to those dynamics.
