APA California is pleased to announce the launch of our new YouTube channel where you’ll find a variety of recorded webinars and conference sessions available for immediate viewing.

The 2017 Sacramento Conference session “Make No Little Plans: The Short History of Big Thinking and Big Plans in California” and the California Legislative Update and Wireless Communication Facilities webinars hosted by APA Northern Section are available at no cost. Free viewing is also available for the Opening Keynote Address with Sacramento Mayor, Darrel Steinberg and Sacramento County Supervisor Phil Serna as well as the Closing Plenary with League of California Cities Executive Director, Carolyn Coleman.

You’ll also find previews of recent recordings from the 2017 conference and older recordings no longer offered for CM credit. The following 2017 recordings are available through registration and payment of a small fee.

The Chapter YouTube channel is a resource for all planners. Webinars and video recordings created by the Sections can be shared for free or offered for a fee through the Section registration process. The Chapter will gladly promote Section recorded materials statewide through our e-blasts and social media.

I encourage every APA member to browse through our free offerings. Not everyone can make it to the annual conference and most AICP members can always use a few extra CM credits. With smartphones and tablets it’s amazing how easy it is to expand your planning education. Give it a try and see!
