UTSA URP students attend 2019 National Planning Conference

The American Planning Association’s 2019 National Conference (NPC19) was an outstanding learning experience for the UTSA students who travelled to San Francisco, CA to attend. The conference, held April 13-16, was an opportunity to experience a multitude of planning perspectives through various seminars, which students attended based on each student’s individual planning interests. In addition to seminars, the students also partook in GIS workshops and were given the opportunity to interact with numerous new planning technologies. The learning experiences did not end at the conference seminars, as several networking mixers allowed UTSA students to develop national networking connections with professional planners, mentors, APA leaders, and planning students, and promoted the UTSA planning program on a national level.
