I am joining thousands of other planners in wondering if the APA National Conference has jumped the shark. It is insanely expensive and the program is totally confusing. I don't have an issue with it being in LA but good luck getting around without renting a car - - - more expense. I need the CM's but can get them in a number of other places. I am seriously considering going to the Smart Growth Conference in San Diego instead - - - at roughly half the cost.
