The work and programs by the Southeast Section of the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Planning Association (APAPASE) aren’t possible without the support of our sponsors. We are releasing sponsorships now for organizations who prefer to take advantage of end of year giving, but are always happy to work with new sponsors.

Inside the Planner’s Studio with Eleanor Sharpe
Wednesday, November 7, 2018 from 5:45 to 7:45 PM
The Innovation Lab
Have you ever wondered how someone became such a successful and effective planner? What advice they could provide about civic engagement? What projects are they are most proud of and why? APAPASE’s “Inside the Planner’s Studio” series asks these questions and more.
We’re honored to have Eleanor Sharpe, Deputy Director for Philadelphia’s Department of Planning and Zoning and the Executive Director for the Philadelphia City Planning Commission as our 5th speaker in the series. Karen Thompson of the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation will be asking Ms. Sharpe about her career, civic engagement, and her advice for planners.
Karen will skip the small talk and ask Ms. Sharpe the big questions: What pivotal moments have shaped her career? If she could go back, would she do anything differently? You’ll have to come to find out!
- 5:45-6:15: The event will begin with networking. Light hors d’oeuvres will be provided.
- 6:15-7:00: The Inside the Planner’s Studio program will take place.
- 7:00-7:15: Ms. Sharpe will take questions from the audience.
- 7:15-7:45: There will be additional time to network after the event.

Please tune into our webinar on July 19 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. if you are interested in becoming a Future City mentor for the 2018-2019 school year at one of your local schools. Mike McAtee, the Future City Philadelphia Mentor Coordinator, will give a presentation and take participants’ questions at the end.
The Future City program offers a variety of volunteer opportunities to get involved with students in your local community. This webinar will help you understand if you are ready to be a mentor, judge, or a general volunteer for the 2019 Future City Philadelphia Regional Competition.
The Philadelphia Regional Future City Competition is a 501 (c)3 educational outreach program of DiscoverE. It is one of 41 regional programs conducted throughout the country. Future City is an inspiring program that helps introduce 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students to the engineering, architecture, and planning professions. Participating STEM teams across the country compete once a year in a regional competition in January. Finalists then proceed to present their projects at the National Competition during National Engineers Week in February in Washington, D.C.
The competition requires participating teams from schools and youth-focused organizations (e.g., Boy or Girl Scouts, Boys and Girls Clubs, 4-H, YMCA STEM clubs) to create their own future city, based on project criteria and guidelines for that year. Students are encouraged to prepare a variety of deliverables, including a project plan, tabletop-scale model, and virtual city, under the supervision and assistance of a teacher and mentor. Mentors should be professionals in the fields of engineering, planning, and architecture interested in investing time and energy in helping students realize their projects.
