Caltrans' Jacqueline Hodaly emphasizes that the 2015 Planning Conference will be a great way to get up to speed on lots of new legislation and programs - from the latest federal transportation bill, to recent CA legislation, to statewide greenhouse gas emission reduction initiatives. Hodaly emphasizes that this year's conference will not be overly top down, but will feature open discussion formats where participants can dialogue with experts and with each other. There will be an emphasis on partnerships, focusing on how leaders, agencies, businesses, communities, and others can work together to implement multi-modal projects, active transportation solutions, and great places.

If that's not enough, there's a fancy conference app that allows attendees to track sessions and generate a personal schedule - available for iPhone or android.

Attending the conference costs $400, though there are substantial discounts for students, nonprofits, and tribal governments. Sign up online via EventBrite.
