It's February! Let's talk about our one true love - urban planning! We'll start the evening with what you LOVE about our profession.


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

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!


Attention Members! Want an online community but can't join a live event?

Join the online Illinois Planners' Forum

Since 2007, the APA-IL has invited APA-IL members to ask questions and collaborate with colleagues through an online forum. In 2020, we've transitioned the APA-IL Illinois Planners' Forum to Google Groups. If you're a member and not already part of the new Forum we invite you to join! This is THE one-stop-shop for asking questions about Illinois urban planning issues. Past questions have ranged from solar panels to pigs as pets to virtual public meetings. LEARN MORE > >
