This year’s APA’s National Planning Conference on April 14 - 17 at the Los Angeles Convention Center is not to be missed. With four packed days of sessions, mobile and training workshops and special programs, the conference will see over 6,000 planners and planning officials come through the doors.

Join Molly Mowery, NFPA’s Wildland Fire Operations Division project manager on Saturday, April 14 as she presents,  “Wildfire Planning in the SoCal Hills” at 2:30 PM with Donald L. Elliott from Clarion Associates and Joshua S. Huntington, Sr. Planner from the Current Planning Division of Los Angeles County’s Department of Regional Planning. In this session, you’ll learn how planning and regulatory tools can reduce wildfire risk. You’ll also review the best practices from a national study on the effectiveness of wildfire hazard ordinances, and hear tips from a seasoned land use attorney on implementing wildfire regulations in your community.

Throughout the week, don’t forget to stop by the NFPA Firewise booth to talk with Michele Steinberg and Cheryl Blake about the Firewise Communities Program, and learn more about the latest Firewise products.

See a complete listing of programs, speakers and exhibitors on the APA website. We hope you will join us!
