Mark Your Calendar - 2021 Conference - It Will be Live!

Wednesday October 13 - Friday October 15, 2021 @ the Hilton, Burlington Vermont


COVID-19 Precautions:

Vaccine/Testing/Masking Requirement in Effect

Based on current information about infection rates, and in order to ensure the safety of our members during our conference, the NNECAPA Executive Committee has adopted two COVID-19 policies that will be in-place for all conference attendees:

  • All attendees will be required to show proof of a completed vaccination at registration, or if unvaccinated, have a negative COVID-19 test result from within 72 hours prior to registration.
  • Masks will be required indoors for all attendees while in the hotel’s conference center regardless of vaccination status except when actively eating or drinking, and for speakers while presenting.

Additional information about COVID-19 trends in Vermont and the Burlington area are enclosed in the attached document. We will provide additional updates as the conference approaches.

We look forward to welcoming you to Burlington, and are confident that these measures will help us ensure a safe event for all.

The Northern New England Chapter of the American Planning Association (NNECAPA) is pleased to host its 2021 Conference in downtown Burlington, Vermont at the Hilton. The theme for this year’s conference is:

 NNECAPA 2021: Virtual | Reality

Envisioning a New Normal

“Virtual Reality is a simulated experience that can be similar to or completely different from the real world.” - Wikipedia

 While VR is often about tech, this year’s theme is more about how we see the world and our communities: in reality, as we imagine them, and ultimately in how the two views intersect.
