It was just a happy-hour gathering at Arthur Mac’s in Oakland on June 24th, but it was clear that planners were not only thirsty for beer but also to socialize once again. A mix of recent grads and mid-level and veteran planners in both the private and public sectors — a total of 17 people — attended over the course of the evening. It was a lovely outdoor event on a covered patio. We plan on hosting another social event in September and October.
