APBP's Professional Development Seminar is a biennial conference distinguished by in-depth seminars and a collegial atmosphere where participants collaborate to learn how to propel policy into practice. The three-day PDS is packed with state-of-the-practice information for planners, engineers, landscape architects, public health professionals, advocates, elected officials, and others working to advance active transportation and sustainable, livable communities. Attend this conference for cutting edge training and the newest, best information to advance your work and your career.

This year's theme is Dollars and Sense: Economic, Health and Social Benefits of Walking and Bicycling. Through classroom sessions, mobile tours and inspiring plenaries, we'll explore how to build great facilities for active transportation and learn how make the case for these investments. The seminar's 3-hour sessions leverage speakers' expertise and participants' enthusiasm to teach new skills and best practices and generate fresh insights. Sessions are organized into three tracks:

  1. Return on Investment for Active Transportation
  2. Guidelines, Standards and Decision-Making
  3. Integrated Corridor Planning and Design

Mobile workshops and bike and walking tours complement the classroom sessions. Each 3-hour time slot (morning and afternoon) offers a choice of three classroom sessions and two mobile sessions. Classroom and mobile sessions begin in the morning on Tuesday, September 10, and end at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, September 12. (All-day and half-day pre-conference workshops will be offered separately on Monday, September 9 for additional fees.)

  • A choice of five out of more than 20 classroom and mobile sessions (no extra charge for mobile sessions)
  • Two lunches (T/W), five morning and afternoon breaks (T/W/Th), and two evening receptions (M/T)

These sessions and events are available for an additional fee:

  • Closing luncheon with a speaker TBA on Thursday, September 12, 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
  • Optional all-day or half-day sessions on Monday, September 9 (workshops to be announced)
  • Additional tickets to the Monday and Tuesday night receptions for spouses and friends

APBP will apply to the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) for Certification Maintenance credits for all PDS 2013 sessions. A certificate of attendance will be offered to those who document their professional development hours in other fields.
