Conference Update

The 2016 Joint GPA-SCAPA Fall Conference is shaping up to be a great one! Thank you to all of you who submitted session proposals.  We received great ones from both Georgia and South Carolina, and are pleased to be offering a wide variety of breakout sessions, as well as mobile workshops which will showcase innovative planning in and around Augusta. If you are taking the Comprehensive Planning Exam in November, you don’t want to miss the AICP Review Courses in Planning History and Theory; Public Participation and Social Justice; and Planning Law. Need Ethics and Law CM credits? We have you covered with sessions on both topics! The full, draft conference schedule will be posted on the GPA Conference web page by this Friday.

All sessions have been approved for Certification Maintenance (CM) credits. AICP CM Credits are also eligible for CNU-A credits.  We have also submitted the sessions/conference for Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System (LA CES) credits.
