Attending the conference is a great way to find out what professional planners in Colorado are doing currently, learn about critical topics in Colorado planning, network with potential internship hosts and future employers, and have a great time getting to know your fellow MURP students!   See the APA CO Conference Site for more details about location and topics, and updated versions of the schedule.  You can check out the Preliminary Conference Program here: 2016-conf-online-program.

APAS will be helping students both pay for conference registration and coordinate carpools, housing, and volunteering.  You are eligible for the $75 student rate as long as you a current student and you volunteer (we will link to a sing-up sheet when it is available).  APAS will reimburse each student at least $50 (if there is additional room in the budget we may reimburse up to $75).
