We are excited to be at the APA California Virtual Conference, September 13-15. This year’s conference is centered around the theme of “Changing Plans, Changing Planning.” There will be plenty of thought-provoking topics to enjoy, and we hope to see you at one of our sponsored events.

Many from ESA’s Community Development and Planning team will be attending the conference this year and we look forward to connecting with you.

ESA is a proud sponsor of the APA Conference and will have a virtual booth on Tuesday, September 14th, 10-11AM. Swing by and meet members from our team!
