Conference (2016): APPI Annual Conference - Meeting Change

Alberta Professional Planners Institute 2016 Annual Conference

Meeting Change

October 2-4, 2016

Jasper, Alberta

Canada’s west has endured a variety of changes in recent years.  Economically, politically, demographically, technologically, environmentally – we are immersed in our evolution.  We have been and will be confronting, embracing, and addressing an unfolding political landscape, economic challenges, climate change, technical advancements, and immigrant influx and cultural diversification. Not only that, the planning frameworks for Alberta are also undergoing transformations. Whether addressing emergent opportunities or delivering transformation, new challenges and creative solutions provide important platforms for actively sharing and embracing the changes around us. At the 2016 APPI Conference we gather with the great minds of the planning profession to learn, discuss, and boldly meet change.
