Third Annual APA/ASLA/AIA Joint Conference – June 12th, 2015
“Community Engagement in the Design Process”
The June Conference is an annual one-day interdisciplinary event jointly organized by the New York Metro Chapters of the American Planning Association (APA), American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), and the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Now in its third year, the 2015 Conference will explore the role played by community groups in collaborative planning and design processes. This event will investigate how design professionals, public sector agencies, non-profits and related organizations can effectively engage the public to inform context-specific decision-making for the betterment of projects. Participants will hear from experienced practitioners and stakeholders in a morning panel discussion. The afternoon session will examine case studies and end with an insightful guided tour of a project site. The event will be highlighted by keynote speeches from (1) Mitchell J. Silver, FAICP, Commissioner of the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, and (2) Nilda Mesa, Director of the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability.
