Recap of the 2017 APA Arizona Conference

c.jpg

The 2017 APA Arizona Conference is now behind us and we want to extend a warm thank you to our 328 attendees and 24 sponsors! This year’s annual State Planning Conference was held at the We-Ko-Pa Resort and Conference Center at Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation. It was a great event with wonderful speakers and sessions, as well as spectacular views and fun networking opportunities. From the great lunch sessions and workshops, to the fun goofy golf at the Planners' Bazaar, the mobile tours, and after hour painting party and games, a great time was had by all!

We want to once again congratulate all of our award winners! The awards were handed out at our annual awards luncheon held during the conference on October 26, 2017.  Click here for a full list of winners.

If you attended the conference, please be sure to log into your APA account to log your CM credits and let us know what you liked most about the event and what we can improve on. Our State Planning Board’s goal is to continue to bring you different topics and fun events to keep the annual conferences new and exciting for everyone!

We hope you all thoroughly enjoyed your time and look forward to more sessions and networking in the year ahead with various workshops, networking opportunities, mentoring and other fun events put on by the AZAPA Central and Southern Section Boards.

Please mark your calendars for next year’s conference dates from November 7-9, 2018 where we will be in Arizona’s High Country in Flagstaff, Arizona. We look forward to seeing everyone there and throughout the year ahead!
