2020 Planning Awards

Recognition of APA MN 2020 Planning Awards will be a highlight of the conference. Nominations for awards are now being accepted through May 29, 2020. For more information, click here.


5/25/20 UPDATE: With the switch to an online conference, roles will change. Additional information will be posted here when available.

If you would like to volunteer for the conference, contact the appropriate committee chairs listed below.  Volunteering is a terrific way to network with peers from around the state!

We are also in need of onsite volunteers to help with registration and room monitoring.  A Call for Onsite Volunteers will be issued after registration opens in July.
