NYIBY - Facebook posts will not economically help this region, real jobs that pay will.

Monday, November 25, 2019, 8:28 a.m. CST

I think the speakers should have focused on a few ideas. They blasted through a lot of grant possibilities too quickly to be very practical.

Work/Life Balance for Planners

5

As in this session, planners need to talk about what it means to be a planner - in our personal lives - and how we deal with the personal impact of our profession. The speakers led a great session.

Tuesday, November 19, 2019, 9:42 p.m. CST

Gender, Ethics, and the Great Outdoors

5

This was the best ethics session I've attended in my many years as an AICP planner. Let's continue to get away from talking about scenarios of whether it's proper to take a bribe (duh) and get to real ethical issues of our society.

Tuesday, November 19, 2019, 9:38 p.m. CST

good session, I got some good ideas and good info from it that can be put into practice right away.

Tuesday, November 19, 2019, 1:24 p.m. CST

Gender, Ethics, and the Great Outdoors

3

this was an interesting session on a topic that is becoming more important, but I can't understand how this session met the requirements for Ethics credit - the conversation never focused on the AICP Code of Ethics and instead ended up being more of a "story telling of experiences" session. Nevertheless, it was an interesting conversation and the format chosen by the coordinator was good.

Tuesday, November 19, 2019, 1:18 p.m. CST

Storytelling for Advocacy

4

interesting talk with a lot of good points for all planners and anyone who deals with the general public.

Pop-up Planning: Short-Term Projects for Long-Term Change

Interesting juxtaposition of political dynamics in different communities. In some, it's possible to 'just do it' and test it; in others, you have to have the whole plan in place before you can gain traction to do anything.

Tuesday, November 19, 2019, 12:41 p.m. CST

Tuesday, November 19, 2019, 12:34 p.m. CST

Federal Law Risk Management for Planners

4

I don't know why towns would want to adopt telecom regs at this point, especially since most installations are exempted by the PUC in Vermont. I am sure that many communities have not given enough thought to Reed vs. Town of Gilbert.

Tuesday, November 19, 2019, 12:30 p.m. CST
