NCDD / IAP2 gathering at APA conference in Atlanta this Tuesday night

For those of you attending the American Planning Association (APA) conference this week in Atlanta (and those of you based in/near Atlanta but not attending APA), be sure to participate in Tuesday night’s joint meetup for members of APA, NCDD and/or IAP2 USA who are interested in bridging the fields of public participation and planning.

The idea began with a listserv post by Ron Thomas on the NCDD Discussion list, where he expressed a desire to infuse the planning profession (and APA conferences) with a stronger understanding of highly participatory public engagement work.

NCDD members Myles Alexander (of Kansas State University’s Center for Engagement and Community Development) and Tim Bonnemann (of Intellitics, Inc. and the board of IAP2 USA), worked together to organize an informal gathering at APA — and all NCDD members are welcome to attend.
