2021 National Planning Conference

County Planning Session Proposals Needed for 2021 NPC

Hello County Planners and Happy Holidays!

Most of you have heard that NPC21 will be entirely virtual in 2021.  Although this is a big letdown since we will be missing our chance to meet together in person, it is still a great opportunity to share information on topics that are important to you by submitting a proposal through NPC21 website.   If you are looking for some help promoting your idea, please let us know.  The County Planning Division leadership wants to work with members to develop ideas into sessions that the CPD membership will benefit from.  CPD can help find speakers for your session or work with you to develop your concept further.  Deadline for submittal of proposals on the NPC21 site is January 6.   

Don’t need division help with your idea?  The County Planning Division would like to know your ideas so that we can promote sessions that are developed by and interesting to our membership.  If you have a session planned and you would like the Division to help promote your session, please let us know.

Finally, the County Planning Division will be submitting a proposal(s) for a facilitated, discussion-based session featuring topics ranging from student mentorship, to marijuana, to Short Term Rentals and more.  If you are interested in being part of the discussion or if you have additional ideas for topics, please reply to this email.
