International Presidents Plenary: Planning in a Time of Uncertainty

Tuesday, May 9, 2017 | 8 a.m. - 9:15 a.m.

Faced with changes in governments, international relations and various pressures on the planning profession, what are planning organizations doing to respond to these times of uncertainty?  How are they helping members with information and connections to policy makers and forging partnerships?  The presidents of RTPI, PIA, CIP, and APA discuss how they and their organizations are responding to change and how these issues are shaping planning internationally.

This session will feature short presentations from each organization President, followed by questions from the audience.
