    APA conference: What's new in the planning world?

    Maybe I missed it, but have people reported back on the APA conference in San Francisco? What's new and exciting? Were there any great sessions, presenters, ideas or cool places that you had the opportunity to visit?

    Well that was a bomb. Just the same old boring San Francisco, I guess.

    Missed this thread initially....spent most of my time at inclusionary zoning/affordable housing sessions. APA seems to be making a concerted effort (at least in conference offerings) in the affordable housing area.

    I went to many of the same sessions as NHPlanner.

    The theme of next year's conference in San Antonio will be affordable housing.
