Thank you to everyone for an outstanding 2017 SACRPH Conference. See you again in 2019!

SACRPH held its 17th National Conference on Planning History in Cleveland, Ohio, on October 26-29, 2017. The Society wishes to thank all involved — from organizers to attendees — for making this event possible. We especially thank those who took on leadership roles, including those members pictured above (l-r): Margaret Crawford (now Past-President), J. Mark Souther (Local Arrangements Committee C0-chair), and Program Committee Co-chairs Julian Chambliss and David Freund. Local Arrangements Committee Co-chair Stephanie Ryberg-Webster is not pictured.

In case you could not make it to Cleveland, please check out the conference webpage for more info, including a copy of the program and details on tours (with some online content that can still be enjoyed, even after the conference).

The conference also marked changes in the Society’s leadership. We welcome D. Bradford Hunt as SACRPH’s next President, Nancy Kwak as President-Elect, and several new board members: Willow Lung-Amam, Angel Nieves, Stephanie Ryberg-Webster, J. Mark Souther, and Sanjeev Vidyarthi.

At the Saturday night reception, we announced the winners of the 2017 SACRPH awards. Please see the Awards page for further info.


The Society for American City and Regional Planning History (SACRPH) was founded in 1986. The organization promotes scholarship on the planning of cities and metropolitan regions over time, and bridges the gap between the study of cities and the practice of urban planning.
