2019 Conference Sponsorship Information

The MPCA conducts regular regional workshops around the state, develops educational materials and best practices for citizen planners, and establishes and maintains a support network for new and experienced planning commissioners. However, its premier event is the annual fall conference! The MPCA will host its 2019 conference on November 6 and 7, 2019, at the Holiday Inn Express Aberdeen. In addition to popular and traditional sessions such as the Planning Commissioner Education Course, Open Meetings Act Training, the Nuts and Bolts of Being a Planning Commissioner, and Ethics and Ex Parte Communication, the MPCA will be developing a full and engaging conference program around the theme of Meeting the Trends, Embracing the Future.

The MPCA conference attracts a broad array of people involved in planning, economic, and community development in Maryland. Citizen and professional planners mingle with consultants, elected officials, and state representatives; engaging in a dialogue about shared responsibilities, distinct but collaborative roles, and systems for efficient planning.



Sponsors are provided an opportunity to communicate with and inform a diverse cross-section of individuals engaged in planning in Maryland. The MPCA is an organization of volunteers and planning advocates, and its modest sponsorship levels reflect the desire to bring everyone involved in this work to the table.
