Consortium for Scenario Planning 2023 Conference

February 1 - February 3

The Consortium for Scenario Planning will host its sixth annual conference in person! Focused on new and current scenario planning projects, the three-day conference will showcase scenario planning work in the Southwest, with session recordings available to attendees afterward.
