Spring Retreat 2022 TAPA Spring Retreat | Fall Creek Falls State Park | March 2nd through 4th 2022
Every year, TAPA hosts a Spring Retreat during March or April. Usually attended by around 100 planners, the Spring Retreat is smaller with less sessions than the Fall Conference. However, it gives Tennessee planners another chance to get together, exchange ideas, and learn from each other to advance better community planning across the State.
The 2022 Spring Retreat will be March 2nd through 4th at Fall Creek Falls State Park in Middle Tennessee. This will be the first time the Spring Retreat has been held at Fall Creek Falls since 2017. Registration and sponsorship information will be announced at a later date so continue checking the website and the newsletter for more information.
Spring 2021 Refresh, Renew, Refocus
For the second straight time, TAPA had to have a major event online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The tagline this year was "Refresh, Renew, Refocus" and it consisted of 10.5 hours of CM credits streamed over two days in February. See the agenda here and watch recorded webinars on-demand from it here.
