The Nebraska Planning Conference 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 the Nebraska Chapter of the American Planning Association.

Your community /organization is encouraged to support NPZA as a 2024 member. Join NPZA
