The Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut Chapters of the American Planning Association organize an annual regional planning conference known as the Southern New England APA Conference (SNEAPA).

SNEAPA 2021 @ A Distance will be a virtual conference. 

Typically held in the Fall, the conference is one of the best learning experiences for APA/AICP members in the region. The conference features two days of high quality, hands-on and interactive sessions, mobile workshops, planning law and planning ethics presentations, member networking, vendor contacts, plus a few surprises.

As we continue to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, for the safety of our presenters and attendees, SNEAPA 2021 will be a virtual conference. Similar to SNEAPA 2020, the conference will be 100% virtual providing the opportunity to receive quality content and credit maintenance opportunity from the safety of your own homes and offices. 

The SNEAPA Committee hopes to return to an in-person conference in Providence, RI in 2022.

For AICP members, this is a valuable experience to gain those much needed credits for Certification Maintenance. Whether you are an APA member, an AICP member, a student, or a person with an interest in the practice of Planning, this conference always delivers something for everyone!
