Attention Planners: The APA California 2023 Conference will be held in Downtown Fresno! The CenCal Section is hard at work preparing to make this a memorable conference that you won’t want to miss!

California’s Central Valley is a unique place in our state. Here, cultures from around the world have found their home in its agricultural bounty. Cities and towns have developed a special character related to our land and people, as well as our resources of food, water, and transportation, which have dramatically shaped the state in which we live.

At the conference, we’ll explore the past and future of our profession, its successes and its failures, and what lies beyond the crossroads, including the California High-Speed Rail project, affordable housing, equity in our communities, how to plan for climate change, and addressing issues related to environmental and social justice.

Join the APA California Chapter in Fresno for our annual APA conference and also celebrate the Chapter’s 75th Anniversary dedicated to making great communities happen. Come join us at the crossroads from September  16-19, 2023, as we celebrate the past, present, and future of California planning. We hope to see you at the crossroads!
