Call for Presenters/Sessions for 2021 Nebraska Annual Planning Conference - March 3-5, 2021
The Nebraska Planning and Zoning Association (NPZA) and Nebraska Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA-NE) will convene in March of 2021 for the Nebraska Annual Planning Conference. We invite you to share your experiences with local, state, and federal officials, industry leaders, consultants, and other interested parties by presenting a session.
At this time, we are planning to hold this conference at the Younes Conference Center in Kearney, Nebraska. However, in light of the current pandemic, we have concluded that some flexibility in how the conference is presented is warranted. This Call for Sessions has been modified to request additional information about the presenter’s ability to present virtually if the event was shifted online or a hybrid approach is selected.

Memorandum to the Association in PDF (updated July 30, 2014)
The Nebraska Annual Planning Conference/ training event is keyed to providing local planning officials from commissioners to elected officials to appointed officials to citizens to attorneys, which are rookies or veterans committed to the continuous development of sound planning principles for their counties and municipalities. It also offers many choices for the professional planners, which assist the volunteer planners, in expanding their knowledge of planning disciplines through NE APA.
Your community /organization is encouraged to support NPZA as a 2020 member. Join NPZA
