2014 Call for Presenters

The Oklahoma Chapter of the American Planning Association (OKAPA) will convene in Norman in October 2014 for the annual conference.  We invite you to share your experiences with local, state, and federal officials, industry leaders, consultants, and other interested parties by presenting a paper relevant to our theme, “Planning for a More Resilient Oklahoma” with a focus on our environment.  We are particularly interested in sessions related to: planning for natural hazards like drought, tornados, earthquakes, fires, extreme weather, and planning with indigenous knowledge.  Submission of presentations on topics outside this theme are also welcome.  CLICK HERE FOR FULL INFORMATION.



APA Online Survey

APA invites you to participate in a brief online survey and share your ideas on food systems planning.  Even if you or your organization does not currently work in food systems planning, we still want to hear from you. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes. Your responses will provide important insight into the current state of food systems planning in the United States.


Take the survey:



This survey is part of the Growing Food Connections project. With funding from the United States Department of Agriculture, this five-year initiative will build the capacity of planners and policy makers to support community food systems. Project partners include APA, American Farmland Trust, Cultivating Healthy Places, Ohio State University, and the University at Buffalo.
