From September 15-18, 2019, APA California and the Central Coast Section welcome you to Santa Barbara for the APA California Conference, which will take place at the Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort. With the theme A Resilient Future, the conference aims to tackle pressing local and statewide issues, including housing, energy, climate change, transportation, diversity, and disaster recovery. Filled with significance to the Central Coast, as with many communities throughout California, resiliency at its core is defined as maintaining, improving, and responding to what exists in our communities. We look forward to sparking dialogue, providing network opportunities, and participating in engaging discussions for what A Resilient Future means across California. On behalf of the entire conference host committee, we welcome you to APA California 2019 and will see you in Santa Barbara in September!
