Ah, spring the most popular time of year for conferences. Much like the birth and growth witnessed in nature each spring, there often is a renewed sense of energy for those who attend these events. These events can conjure new ideas and a renewed sense of passion through listening to great presenters in your field.

Each year the Nebraska Planning and Zoning Association (NPZA), along with their sister organization the Nebraska Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA-NE) hold the Nebraska Planning Conference. It’s a unique partnership between two different organizations with a common goal in planning and zoning leadership for the state of Nebraska. The result is an affordable source of planning and zoning information for small town city clerks, planning commissioners, and rural county zoning administrators. Yet, at the same time it provides higher-end education and CM for AICP certified planners from the larger communities.

This year’s conference features some great national speakers:

  • Kurt Christiansen, FAICP (@basicla) – President of APA
  • Jason Jordan (@jasonjordan) – Director of Policy for APA
  • Lauren Driscoll, AICP (@lmkdiva) – Director at Large on the APA Board of Directors
  • Wendy Moeller, AICP (@Wendy_Moeller) – Region IV rep on the APA Board of Directors

For those with involvement in the planning and zoning field in Nebraska this conference is a must. Check out the NPZA webpage for more.
