Spring Seminar

March 18, 2020 Update: One of our most successful annual events is the Spring Mobile Tour. We will continue with our 30-day window response plan. In the next 30 days, we will evaluate our ability to host this annual event. If we are ultimately unable to host an event in person, we will work to host a Virtual Spring Seminar. Historically, this had been a day-long classroom offering as an alternative to our larger Fall State Conference, hosted in the Metro Area to balance our focus on Greater Minnesota at our annual Fall Conference. We feel this could continue to be an effective day-long seminar, even in the virtual environment. More information will come in the next couple of weeks.

The mission of the Spring Seminar is to deliver an interesting, informative, and educational event to members for AICP Credit as a complement to the annual State Conference. Information on the 2020 spring seminar will be posted here when available. For more information, contact Spring Seminar Chair Patrick Boylan, AICP at 651-602-1438 or by email.

Brown Bag Lunch Seminars

May 25, 2020 Update: These events are already offered as webinars. The upcoming June event will only be offered as a webinar. We will continue to evaluate future events to determine what format is appropriate.

APA Minnesota's Professional Development Committee is hosting a series of Brown Bag events throughout the year. In addition to providing valuable education, APA MN's Brown Bag Lunch Seminars are a terrific opportunity to get out of the office and visit with planning peers. BYOL (Bring Your Own Lunch).
