City Forum | The Everyday Lives of Planners: Diverse Opportunities in a Changing Field

Friday Sept. 11, 2009 , noon to 1:30 p.m.

As more jurisdictions search for answers to the most pressing challenges surrounding growth, resource management and sustainability, planners are working in a multitude of ways to find solutions in the public and private sectors. This City Forum brings together four planners who represent some of the diverse perspectives, personal backgrounds, and career trajectories that characterize this profession. They will reflect on the challenges and opportunities they encounter in their daily work, discuss the role and goals of professional planning education, and respond to questions and comments from students.
