2/9/21 - APA-IL Coffee Talk Networking Hour

Updated: Jan 7, 2022

Join the APA-IL for a midday hour-o-networking! Grab a cup-o-joe and come talk, find inspiration, and a fresh perspective. Bring your urban planning issues and questions!

DATE: Tuesday, February 9, 2021

TIME: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Grab a beverage and something to munch on, sit down at your computer or call in, and join your fellow planners online for an hour of conversation and camaraderie.

What can I expect during Coffee Talk?

Each Coffee Talk meets for 1 hour. After a short introduction from each member, we welcome any questions from the group, for the group. Topics can be emailed to ahead of time.

Questions can range from how municipalities are working with local restaurants to create outdoor eating spaces to students asking questions about their capstone projects.

APA-IL's Coffee Talks have included students, faculty, municipal planners, plan commissioners, consultants, and those in the not-for-profit sector from Collinsville to Kenosha, WI. Are you a planner or allied professional in-transition? Coffee Talks are a great way to network and stay on top of the latest trends. The APA-IL Membership Committee has organized these virtual networking opportunities to give APA-IL members a chance to network, learn from each other, and blow off a little steam.

Please note, participants must be signed-in into Zoom in order to participate. Use your personal password to sign-in, not the meeting password. This measure is in place to help deter zoombombing. Thanks!
