APA-CMS headed to the beach on 7/11! We've decided. It's the best place to earn CM!

July 16, 2018

30 adventurous planners joined the APA-CMS on 7/11 at the Indiana Dunes for the program Planning along the Illinois-Indiana Border. Speakers from the NIRPC, Field Museum, National Park Service, and Calumet Collaborative spoke of many plans for the area that join both sides of the state line.
