This year’s workshop theme of “Building Back Better” celebrates federal planning projects, programs and collaborative approaches that effectively balance human, environmental, and fiscal requirements in federal placemaking.  We are excited to create unique networking experiences that celebrate and connect our members with non-profit organizations that support local active duty, retired, and military family communities in San Diego County.
