Sacramento Valley Section

2022 Speaker Series

This is a unique time to innovate, collaborate, and invent new approaches to planning practices and the challenges our communities face. Historic strategies are not as relevant as they once were. Industry professionals struggle to find past methods and examples that fit the new era perspectives and address the complex challenges ahead. What processes do we control? How do we influence outcomes? It’s time to engage emerging professionals and expand our perspective, time to take risks. The 2022 Speaker Series will discuss bold approaches and discover future practices that will meet the goals of today and transform tomorrow.

All sessions will be held from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.
Join us for coffee and networking from 8:00 to 8:30 a.m.
West Sacramento Community Center, 1075 West Capitol Avenue, West Sacramento
Free, Unrestricted Parking at 1271 West Capitol Avenue (behind Walgreens)

We hope you can join us in person, but we will have a Live Streaming option for all sessions at the same price as attending in person.
