Registration is open! Have you thought about updating your sign code, but don't know where to start? Or maybe you have already updated your sign code and are interested in learning about the new trends in signage design? Given the Supreme Court’s ruling of Reed V. Town of Gilbert (2015), coming up with reasonable sign codes that comply with the new legal requirements while staying up to date with everchanging trends can often be a complex challenge to face. Speakers at this session will tackle the challenge of sign code by providing you with legal tips, updates since the Supreme Court ruling, importance of signage and its effect on community image, economic value of signage to the City or district, and some new technology features that can be incorporated in signage- including solar panels as a power source! Join APA-CMS for a presentation followed by a lively Q&A discussion on the world that is signage!
