The 2016 APA California Chapter Conference in Pasadena is seeking proposals for fun and informative mobile workshops in the Los Angeles region. A tour can involve recreational activities, unique foods, cultural experiences, behind-the-scenes access, or other local destinations and experiences. We are seeking opportunities that appeal to a range of audiences – public and private sectors, urban and rural planners, current and long-range planners that will showcase the innovative planning going on throughout the Los Angeles region.
IS IT UNIQUE OR NOT WELL KNOWN?
WILL IT SHOWCASE THE DIVERSITY OF LA?
WILL IT BE FUN?
WILL IT BE MEMORABLE?
