We are starting with a Kick-Off
The APA NY Upstate Chapter 2020 Conference is coming to the Capital Region, and we want to celebrate.
PLANNING FROM THE CROSSROADS
On behalf of the New York Upstate Chapter, the Capital District Planners Association Section would like to welcome you to the 2020 American Planning Association Conference: “Planning from the Crossroads,” to be held on September 23-25, 2020 at the Capital Center in Downtown Albany.
Planning from the Crossroads explores how planners treat complex and emotional issues when working with diverse and polarized groups. What is a planner’s role and responsibility in addressing challenges of conflicting interests? We are planning for a stimulating exchange of ideas and potential solutions that creatively circumvent traditional methods of urban planning involvement.
We are also excited to host the 2020 Conference in the City of Albany, an historic capital city that has been a crossroads on many levels, since its beginning as a European settlement and center of transportation, to modern times, where the impacts of political pressures and urban renewal can still be seen within its urban footprint, economy, and resident population.
Lastly, we would like to take a moment to express our sincere appreciation to serve as Co-Chairs of the NY Upstate Chapter 2020 Conference Committee, and to thank all of the members of the volunteer subcommittees for their hard work in coordinating this major event.
We look forward to seeing all of you at this year’s Conference, and we hope that you will find your experience at this event to be both memorable and valuable!
