Nebraska Annual Planning Conference

The Nebraska Planning and Zoning Association (NPZA) and Nebraska Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA-NE) co-host the annual Nebraska Planning Conference the first week of March each year at the Younes Conference Center in Kearney, Nebraska. 

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.
