President's Message

Presidents Message

Dear WYOPASS Member:

Your WYOPASS Board continues to be committed to providing members with quality planning conferences, networking opportunities and continuing education. With 2020 being an unforgettable year, we made our 2020 Fall Conference virtual, and spread it out over several months. Check out the
conference videos, including the award winners at

We decided this year not to hold the Spring Workshop at a physical location. Instead, we will have topics that will be streamed/videoed and they are free to the members. This is a great opportunity for new planning commissioner orientation, continuing education for veteran planners & commissioners, and an opportunity to network with others from across the State.

We will continue our focus on the Planning Commission-best practices, legislative update and current issues. If you have a topic that you would like to be covered during one of our streaming sessions, please let me or another Board member know as soon as possible.

In an effort to improve communication, the Board has been holding conference call meetings monthly. If you would like to participate, let us know and we can provide call-in numbers.

Membership numbers have been declining so we need your support by renewing your WYOPASS membership, attending the conferences, and using the WYOPASS website. Please help your Board increase our membership by recruiting a new member. Membership in WYOPASS is a great way to network with other planners across the state, and to stay informed in our ever-changing world.

As your President, I look forward to advancing our association in the spirit of collaboration and innovation to help you provide vision for your community and Wyoming. Please renew your membership today.

Angela Parker, AICP
WYOPASS President
