You'll learn about:

  • Rich research resources APA offers planning professionals
  • Key trends and issues impacting the planning profession and the communities planners serve 
  • Issues planners face and the research that can help them address those issues

APA's three National Centers for Planning (Green Communities, Hazards Planning, and Planning and Community Health) and other research programs develop resources on key issues to help planning professionals. This work has been supported by federal agencies and foundations and has engaged a range of partners, including university researchers and organizations representing allied professions. In 2015 APA launched its Research Agenda Task Force to define a research mission and priorities that maximize benefits for the planning profession and APA members. Join task force members and APA research staff to discuss what the mission and priorities should be. Attendees will learn about the rich resources available from APA's research and advisory services, APA's response to new developments and trends impacting the planning profession, and the work of the task force to date, including input received from APA members and leadership. You will have the opportunity to contribute your ideas to the development of APA's new research agenda.
