2021 request for proposals

The 2021 American Planning Association (APA) Virginia Chapter Annual Conference is the Chapter’s signature event. For our 51st Annual Conference, we will continue to offer a Conference Program that exemplifies the best of Virginia’s planning practice, theory, projects and persons.

The 2021 Conference theme is Innovation in Planning! This past year certainly has been different, where we have found ourselves learning to adapt to live “outside the norm.” We have been forced to do everything differently: how we live, work, and play. This year’s conference will focus on how we have had to adapt as planners from our work stations to how and what we plan. How has transportation, housing, economic development, social equity, public health, finances, etc. changed in the past year? How do all these factors affect communities and impact what planners do? Twenty first century plans must address these challenges and innovations to ensure the vision we establish for our communities remains viable and equitable. We want to hear from you and give you the opportunity to present your thoughts on how the pandemic has impacted the world of planning, how we approach development, our role as planners, and how will it affect the future – where do we go from here?
