Conference Hotel Booking and Special Rates: Radisson

The 2022 Western Planner Conference will be held in Bismarck, ND and is supported by both the North Dakota and South Dakota Planning Associations. The theme of the conference is being a “bridge” between important, but sometimes conflicting, values in our communities (e.g. urban and rural, government and private development, etc.). The metaphor also pays respect to the long-standing relationship between the Western Planner and the North Dakota Planning Association and references the historic rail bridge across the Missouri between Bismarck and Mandan, ND.

In addition to the exciting regular sessions filled by talented presenters such as yourself, several mobile tours and special events will occur. These include keynote luncheons, downtown walking tour, tour of Fort Abraham Lincoln, tour of the Capitol grounds, an agricultural economy tour, an awards ceremony, a bicycle tour, a pre-conference social, and softball/cornhole game.
