Awards and Recognition

Outstanding Contribution to the Profession Award

The Outstanding Contribution to the Profession Award was established by the Institute in 2008.  This prestigious award is the highest honour awarded to an APPI member, recognizing long term commitment to the Institute and volunteerism.  The recipients have demonstrated exemplary leadership in the planning profession and have contributed to the Institute in a number of capacities.  Nominees for the award are solicited from the APPI membership at large and the final recipients are selected by an volunteer adjudication committee.

The winners will be recognized at the 2020 APPI Volunteer Awards and Appreciation Celebration later in the year.
