SNEAPA 2020

Are you attending the Virtual SNEAPA Conference this week? Join us for a Virtual Session of the MassPlanners Listserv at 11:30 am on Friday (called Chapter Meetings on the SNEAPA Program)! Since Fridays on the MassPlanners listserv are notorious for questions that might be a bit "out there",  we decided to bring it to life during the SNEAPA Conference. Hosted by Tom Bott, Town Planner in Falmouth, planners can bring unique questions to this Virtual Session and Tom will facilitate a lively discussion amongst the participants. Prepare your questions now and 'see' you on Friday at 11:30 am!

Please note: you must be registered for the SNEAPA Conference to attend this Virtual Session.
