Federal Planning Division Training Workshop 2018

APA Federal Planning Division


Tuesday, April 24, 2018, 1:30 p.m.
Thursday, April 26, 2018, 5 p.m. CDT

New Orleans, LA, United States


New Orleans is one of the world's great mixing bowls.  Food, music, cultures, religions, and architecture collide at the intersection of commerce and geography.  The federal government has been there since the Louisiana Purchase.  Attend the Federal Planning Division's two-day Training Workshop (immediately after the National Planning Conference), and learn how federal planners, public and private, respond to tomorrow's challenges.  Why end the conversation when the National Planning Conference concludes?  Come to the FPD Training Workshop to share your most creative ideas with planners truly working globally for America.

The program is currently in development and will be published this winter.  The sessions and mobile workshops will yield approximately 12 AICP CM credits.  The luncheon on Thursday, April 26, 2018 will include an ethics session tailored to the challenges faced by federal planners.

The walking tours will showcase places and activities relevant to federal planning and/or the professional background of attendees as planners, architects, engineers, and landscape architects.

Session topics cover sustainability, logistics, public involvement, space and facilities planning, adaptation of existing infrastructure to new uses, modernization of aging infrastructure, federal policy and appropriations, and environmental stewardship.

Daytime and evening social/networking events will take place at the Loews New Orleans hotel (300 Poydras Street).  A networking reception will officially open the Workshop on Tuesday, April 24, from 6:00-8:00 pm after agency coordination meetings.  The 2018 FPD Awards Dinner (ticket required) will be held on Wednesday, April 25, from 6:00-9:00 p.m.  The Division will also hold a business meeting on Thursday, April 26.
