2019 Northern Section Awards Gala June 7


Join us on June 7 at our 2019 Awards Gala as we honor innovative plans, projects, and distinguished APA members.

This year, meet and mingle with fellow planners as we present our Northern Section awards at Starline Social Club, a restaurant/bar at 2236 Martin Luther King Junior Way, Oakland. Our Section winners often go on to win APA state and national awards.

We offer discounted ticket bundles, so bring your friends and colleagues. Come network, get energized, have fun, and meet your fellow and upcoming STAR planners.

  • Networking Reception: 6:00 to 7:15
  • Presentation of Awards: 7:15 to 8:30
  • Networking Reception: 8:30 to 9:30

NOTE: Oakland’s ‘First Friday’ event takes place the same evening. Parking in the area is limited, so we encourage you to take public transportation, use a ride share service, or carpool. Starline Social Club is a half-mile, 10-minute walk (or a six-minute bus ride on the 72M) from the 19th Street/Oakland BART Station.
