Planners' Day at the Capitol will take place on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 in the Rose Garden at the Arizona State Capitol from 8:00 am to 10:00 am.

This important event provides Arizona planners an opportunity to help elevate the stature of the planning profession in Arizona. A conversation today is remembered and later, when we are commenting on a bill or issue, APA Arizona is recognized and, therefore, our input is given more validity.You are the face of good planning in Arizona! Please bring your project display boards and materials highlighting local planning projects.

As in previous years, APA Arizona will provide bagels and coffee. Also, following the Planners' Day event, there will be continuing education. Please join fellow association members to promote the planning profession and earn CM credits at the Arizona State Capitol on February 5.
