2014 APA CA Conference in Anaheim

The recent 2014 APA California Annual Conference in Anaheim was a great success, and PlaceWorks was thrilled to be a part of it. Our staff participated in 14 panels covering a variety of topics from ethics to outreach. We also had staff in leadership positions helping behind the scenes, including Marissa Aho as AICP Commissioner and Los Angeles Section Director, Wendy Grant as the California Planning Foundation auction planner, and Brooke Peterson as APA California President and Master of Ceremonies for the conference.
