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

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


 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. 

Events of the past several months have shone a bright light on many complex challenges that have persisted in our communities but have largely gone unrecognized or unresolved. At this year’s Conference let us explore the ideas and events that have guided and challenged our perceptions of what is both real and possible and consider how we can respond to post-pandemic opportunities while shaping a better future than we could have imagined before.    

 The Conference Committee is seeking your ideas for presentations that will provide our conference attendees with an inspirational, interactive, and informative program!  We hope to benefit from a real, face-to-face gathering this fall in Burlington, and reflect on the gains and losses from our extended period of virtual work.
