RFP for 2016 APA Mississipi Joint Conference

Please find attached a request for proposals from the American Planning Association – Mississippi Chapter to host our annual conference in 2016. This conference will be a joint conference APA Alabama. Please ensure the submitted proposal covers all areas of the conference, including meeting space, food and beverage, and hotel needs outlined in the request. Proposals should include approximate costs of proposed venues to include reception and meeting spaces. A site selection will be based not only on the submitted proposal and pricing, but will also take into account the site the APA-Mississippi Chapter Board feels can provide the best overall service and experience for our members.

Although APA – Mississippi Chapter would love to hold its conference in every Mississippi community, our location options are limited by the conference space and lodging required for our organization.

All proposals must be submitted electronically to jhillman@ci.brandon.ms.us no later than Wednesday, May 6, 2015. After proposals are submitted, the APA-Mississippi Chapter board will discuss proposals and select a location. A site visit may be necessary at prospective locations prior to selection. As planning professionals, visiting communities around the state has been a rewarding experience during our past conferences. The entire Board is looking forward to reviewing proposals. Thank you for your time. We look forward to hearing from you!
