Arizona APA Student / Professional Happenings: Student Poster Session!

The APA Arizona Planning Association invites planning students to attend and participate in the 2015 Conference, Adapting to Change, which will be held November 4-6, in Tucson, Arizona.

There’s an opportunity again this year for students: a student poster session! Poster sessions give more people time to review your work and to interact with you than would an oral presentation and they facilitate the presentation of academic, non-academic or applied work. Posters will be on display during a fun and informal evening event, the Planners’ Bazaar, where many professionals will be in attendance. Poster authors will be expected to be available for discussion. Professional planners will vote for the “Planner’s Choice,” which awards one student for the best poster.

When:            Planners’ Bazaar on Thursday, November 5, 2015 in the evening (time to be determined)
Where:          Marriott University Park, Tucson, Arizona
