CONFERENCE REGISTRATION - Download Full Brochure

Early registration is now open for this year's state planning conference to be held in Scottsdale September 25-27. Given the impact of the recession on the planning community, the APA Arizona board of directors has created registration pricing options intended to encourage registration yet remain sensitive to the challenges faced by many in this profession. Registrants will have the option to register for the full conference (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) or for Thursday and Friday only.

Preferential pricing is, of course, offered to members. If you are currently not a member, and would like to join, visit the membership page first to do so then register for the conference as a member. Members must log in using their member user name (most likely your work email address) and password to qualify for the member rate. If you do not know your password, the system will email it to you at the email address in your profile.

Conference registrants who are unemployed or underemployed and opting to register at either of the early price rates will have the option to pay for their conference registration in monthly increments to be charged automatically to the credit card used for registration on or near the first of each of the months following receipt of the registration form.  Please contact APA Arizona 602-866-7188 if you wish to take advantage of this opportunity.
