Conference Update (as of 10/4/21):
Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA PA) will be having our Annual Conference in Pittsburgh. Unless state guidelines change for in-person gatherings, APA PA will have our in-person conference. APA PA supports measures to ensure the health and safety of our attendees and will follow guidelines put forth by the CDC, State of Pennsylvania, Allegheny County and the Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel at Station Square.

  • Attendees will be encouraged to wear a mask throughout the conference
  • Attendees may remove their masks when eating or drinking
  • Conference speakers may remove their masks when presenting
  • Meeting room setup will be spaced as best as possible (few will be set to capacity)
    • Masks are encouraged in meeting rooms
  • APA PA and the hotel will have hand sanitizer throughout the conference
  • APA PA will have disinfect wipes throughout the conference
  • APA PA will provide a travel bag with hand sanitizer, mask and a no-touch tool
  • APA PA will also have additional disposable masks

APA PA will not be liable for any real or perceived exposure to COVID-19 or other transmitted condition. There is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID in any public space and exposure is possible despite following all recommended guidelines. By attending APA PA’s Annual conference you are assuming all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

If you do not feel comfortable with APA PA measures, then please do not register for the conference. There is no virtual component to the conference.
