Partner with ISA to educate your members!

Coming up with reasonable and enforceable sign codes can often be a complex and controversial process. With so many community stakeholders caring about sign codes, it is important to get the most accurate, up-to-date information and expertise as possible.

The day long workshop will present modules that educate experienced land use planners on the technology within signs, sign code issues, understanding electronic message centers and the importance of signs to business.


These workshops typically include the following educational modules:

  • Legal considerations including Reed v. Town of Gilbert
  • Economic value of signs
  • Introduction to sign construction and technology
  • Regulating electronic message centers (EMCs)
  • Process and policy considerations when drafting a sign code
  • Municipal perspectives on sign code revisions


What would be needed by your APA chapter or section?

  • You would invite your members to participate and market the program.
  • In return, you would share proceeds generated from attendee registration.


ISA does all the rest!

  • We provide the presenters, including experts from ISA's staff.
  • We host a local planner to present their experience in updating their sign codes.
  • We cover costs associated with the speakers, venue and food (breakfast and lunch).
