Creating great communities for all

Registration is open for APA California’s 2019 Conference

This year’s state conference will be held in Santa Barbara from September 15-18, hosted by Central Coast Section at the Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort.

Online registration and conference details are available at

This year’s conference theme is A Resilient Future. Conference co-chair Tess Harris noted that resiliency means something different to each of us. She hopes the theme will spark dialogue, create partnerships, provide networking opportunities, and foster discussion of what A Resilient Future means for communities across California.

The conference will tackle pressing issues, including climate change, housing, energy, transportation, diversity, sea level rise, sustainability, economy, disaster, and recovery.

Central Coast Section will host APA California’s opening reception on September 15 at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse, an iconic Santa Barbara landmark. (Be sure to climb to the top of the clock tower for a panoramic view of Santa Barbara while you are at the conference.)
