The conference theme is “Partners in Progress” …… working together to create community. We want this conference to provide an excellent opportunity for you to make contacts with professional planners from throughout the western United States and support the communities we are striving to create!
The South Dakota Planners Association (SDPA) and the Western Planner are seeking speakers and sponsors for the 2017 Joint Conference. This year’s event will take place September 13-15, 2017, at the Spearfish Holiday Inn, Spearfish SD. Around 200 participants including planning professionals, consultants, exhibitors, students, and elected officials are anticipated.
You can’t beat our beautiful fall weather, amazing views and great hospitality! We will host some downtime to enjoy your fellow planners; have a BBQ; play softball; and take an exciting mobile tour the Sanford Underground Lab (no we will not be going underground!) We are working on finalizing the schedule, so please keep checking back here.
