Focus North Texas (FNT) is a regional training and continuing education event for city planning-related topics. It’s a one-day planning symposium, and in 2019, the Midwest Texas Section of the APA and the North Central Texas Section of the APA will combine forces to put on this affordable and regional training program together.
Planned and organized by a group of your peers and colleagues, the lineup of this year’s FNT is very exciting. Anne Ricker and Bill Cunningham are our Keynote Lunch speakers, and they will be discussing how to plan in a market-based reality, making plans and policies that are truly integrated into all elements of the city. New this year, we will also have an Opening Plenary panel discussing progressive mobility and its importance to North Texas. Last, but certainly not least, to round out our program will be four tracks of breakout sessions to choose from!
FNT2019 is centrally located at a new venue for us, the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas. It has great access, including being within walking distance to a DART Rail station! There are hotels nearby if you’d like to stay in one, and the venue can accommodate our growing group of planners and planning-types.
