The 39th Annual Maryland Planning Commissioners Association (MPCA) conference is right around the corner! Make sure you register and join the MPCA in the City of Frederick on October 25 and 26 for two days of citizen planner education, camaraderie, and networking. Don’t delay, the early bird registration rate ends August 31st!
The MPCA is seeking nominations to recognize citizen planners and recently developed the draft program. The MPCA is also partnering with Planning to develop sessions that will be eligible for up to five AICP CM Credits.
The MPCA is also seeking conference sponsors. All sponsors will have direct access to conference offerings and be included in conference communications and materials. Even modest amounts go a very long way in helping the small, volunteer-based organization continue to expand its educational and assistance offerings to Maryland’s citizen planners year-round. Learn more about sponsorship opportunities in the link above.
The MPCA is your statewide educational organization for citizen planners, made up of municipal, county, and regional planning commissioners and boards of zoning appeals members. The MPCA Board and its members strive to improve the quality of life for all Marylanders through planning, environmental protection, historic preservation, and growth management.
Founded in 1983 and headquartered in Baltimore, the MPCA is dedicated to the continuing education and professionalism of Maryland’s citizen planners. All members of a planning commission/board and/or board of appeals in Maryland counties and municipalities (incorporated cities, towns, and villages) that exercise planning authority are automatically members of the MPCA.
We hope to see you and hope your fellow board or commission members can join us in Frederick this fall!
