Hawai’i Congress of Planning Officials / APA Hawai’i Chapter 2017 Conference – “Neighbors in Paradise”
Wednesday, September 20, 2017, 8:30 a.m.
Friday, September 22, 2017, noon HST
Honolulu, HI, United States
As the most isolated metropolis in the world, Honolulu depends on its neighbors, including Kaua‘i, Moloka‘i, Maui, Lana‘i, and Hawai‘i Island, for social, economic, and cultural support. Our state’s isolation also creates a unique set of planning challenges that increase the importance of partnerships among public, private, non-profit, and community stakeholders. The 2017 Hawai’i Congress of Planning Officials (HCPO) Conference will be attended by planning professionals from around the state who will help us celebrate successful partnerships and explore ways to strengthen collaboration on our most challenging issues.
The conference will open on Wednesday with a selection of mobile workshops unique to O‘ahu. The formal conference program will feature two keynote speakers and a host of other engaging and thought-provoking sessions all day Thursday and Friday morning.
Over 250 attendees from the four counties of Hawai'i and the State, including public and private sector planners, engineers, developers, and related professionals are expected to gather for this annual event.
