Nebraska Annual Planning Conference

The Nebraska Planning and Zoning Association (NPZA) and Nebraska Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA-NE) will convene in September 2021 for the Nebraska Annual Planning Conference. 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. 

Conference Details

The Nebraska Annual Planning Conference is keyed to providing local planning officials, planners, attorneys and citizens, the information necessary to apply sound planning principles in their counties, villages, and municipalities. The conference also offers many choices for planners in expanding their knowledge of planning disciplines through APA-NE. Sessions offer AICP Certification Maintenance (CM) credits for members of APA. The Conference offers many choices for learning from institute topics to hands-on charrettes. It is also an excellent time to network, meet new people, and catch up on old friendships.

Each conference session will be led by one of our experts on a specific planning topic, developed around emerging and continually challenging issues in the field of planning. Conference-session presenters range from planners, attorneys, and professors to consultants and engineers, all of whom are locally or nationally recognized for their efforts in the field of planning.

The Call for Presenters and Session Proposals is open until April 29, 2022. To apply complete the form below.
