December 2012 Luncheon

Wednesday December 19, 2012:  Annual Holiday Luncheon!!

Please join us on December 19th at Vito’s for our annual holiday luncheon. We will be playing trivia again this year, so everyone should bring some good attitudes, singing voices, senseless trivia knowledge and bribes for the Social Committee if they want to win. This event is brought to you by the Social Committee, the most entertaining and fun loving APA-SLMS members.

Prior to the luncheon, the St. Louis Metro Section APA is conducting a donation drive to support the American Red Cross and its efforts in aiding survivors of Superstorm Sandy.  The SLMS APA will match, dollar for dollar, all donations up to a total of $250.  Visit the Superstorm Sandy Relief page for more information.

Wednesday November 28, 2012:  St. Louis Regional Plan Update

East-West Gateway, FOCUS St. Louis, and 9 other regional partners have joined in an effort to coordinate housing, transportation, the environment, and economic development planning across the St. Louis region. The goal of this effort is to envision a better future for St. Louis that is sustainable, equitable, and livable. The three-year planning process will create a regional plan that builds the capacity of local and regional leaders to implement sustainable practices by sharing knowledge, best practices, and resources; connecting local, regional, state and federal planning efforts; and making federal and local investments more effective and efficient. The planning process will have completed 3 of the 4 meetings in a number of the 11 Community Planning Areas and East-West Gateway will provide an update on the planning process for the RPSD.

Registration will begin at 11:30am.  Lunch will be served and the program will run from 12:00pm to 1:00pm.
