Announcement: A Fall Conference!
Nothing has been the same since March 2020 – we have had to switch to a virtual learning platform for CM opportunities and have missed two Spring conferences and OKI. Our Spring format is now happing in the Fall. But….WE ARE BACK (Hopefully )
The annual APA-KY Conference is being held at Lake Barkley State Resort Park, September 22 – 24, 2021. We have confirmed with the park that all protocols in place related to COVID restrictions will be followed. Hopefully we are back to full capacity, and it is not an issue, but we plan to be flexible as things could always change.
To make reservations, please call the hotel at 1-270-924-1131, option 1 and identify yourself as part of the American Planning Association group. You can also go to the park’s booking website:
