Colorado Planning Conference

Call for Sessions

The call for sessions is OPEN!

Submit Your Session Proposal

We encourage proposals from all planners and all subject matters. The theme for 2024 is Better Together - we can all learn and grow from one another. All planners who have never presented or submitted are encouraged to propose a session that they think will benefit other planners. A mix of presentation types and time-frames from 15 minutes to one hour will be included, so there is space for everyone. Share your successes, challenges, or even a space to commiserate together and think thoughtfully about how to move forward and help communities make progress. This year, it's all about US and what makes our work fun, exciting, difficult, meaningful, and rewarding. The review committee looks forward to reviewing your 2024 Colorado Planning Conference proposal!
