What is a PLAD event?
This is a terrific FREE opportunity to participate in our democracy at a meaningful level, by making our voices heard in Springfield, and establishing relationships with our legislators, while networking with fellow Illinois planning professionals.
APA-IL’s PLAD events are designed for both first-time and previous participants. Students are welcome to attend.
