National Community Planning Month
The achievements of planning are celebrated in October with National Community Planning Month. The annual event kicks off with the announcement of APA's Great Places in America, and includes a wealth of resources designed to help planners educate others about the value of what we do.
APA National provides a wealth of resources that can keep you informed about important policy developments, and also build your capacity to advocate for good planning. Some important resources:
