APA ETHICS REVIEW FEATURING KAHOOT! 10:30 to Noon

Come join us for our annual Saturday morning “two-fer.” At 8:30, Attorney Eric Phillips (Burke, Williams & Sorensen) will discuss how recent and pending housing legislation in California is preempting local planning review and signaling the end of zoning exclusively for single-family residences. At 10:30, a panel of experts led by Darcy Kremin, AICP, (Rincon Consultants) will put your knowledge to the test using Kahoot! — a popular learning game — in a lively and engaging refresher of the Code of Ethics.

Registration required; go here.
