survey-imageIn an effort to provide additional professional development and AICP Certification Maintenance (CM) session offerings here on Long Island that will be most interesting and useful to our members, the Long Island Section of the Metro Chapter of APA kindly asks for your input and ideas on creating and hosting quality and informative programming over the next two years. In addition to the annual Arthur Kunz Memorial Breakfast and East End Planning Conference (traditionally held in late Spring and early Fall, respectively), the LI Section is looking to its members for suggestions on smaller key events/sessions that will provide value to junior and experienced planners working in the region.

We thank you for participating in this brief survey, and look forward to reviewing your input.
