Welcome to the 2018 APA Virginia Chapter Annual Conference Blog! We hope to use this forum for information, the latest news and updates on the Annual Conference. Be sure to check back regularly for updates or follow us on social media using the #APAVA18 or #MountainsOfInfluence.
Over the last several Annual Conferences, APA Virginia Chapter has highlighted resiliency, innovation, integration and evaluation, and future communities. For 2018, we will turn the focus inward on us as planners (including local elected and appointed officials). Planners play a pivotal role as agents of change in their communities. We serve our communities as: advocates, policy setters, designers, environmentalists, preservationists, engineers, data analysts and code enforcers. Planners, more so than any other profession, have a “mountain of influence” over the planning for and realization of a community’s potential. Planners are shaping the future of the Commonwealth every day.
Mark your calendars and join us July 22 to July 25, 2018 at the summit of the Blue Ridge Mountains at Wintergreen Resort.
