Call for Submissions to PLAN North West

PLAN North West invites interested members of APPI, as well as non-members, to submit articles or concepts for articles for consideration in upcoming issues of this planning publication.  In addition to submitting a completed article, you may propose an idea or abstract for consideration by the Editorial Board prior to submitting a completed piece.

Submissions are encouraged for a range of topics and in various formats, including but not limited to: book reviews, travel experiences, lessons learned, planning history, presentation summaries, or research results. The length of submissions can vary between 500 and 2000 words. Submissions for the 2021 Winter edition are due January the 15th. While a suggested theme is centered around the impacts of COVID 19 within the Planning Practice, articles are not restricted to just this topic. 
Planners, both APPI members and non-members, are encouraged to share their valuable experiences with their colleagues across the prairies and north to submit an article today!  Regulated members of the Institutes may log the time committed to preparing articles as structured learning for the purposes of their mandatory Continuous Professional Learning (CPL).   Having your article published in PLAN North West contributes to the planning community and provides an opportunity for professional advancement and personal satisfaction.   
If you have any questions about PLAN North West or would like to discuss your idea about a potential article, please feel free to contact [email protected] and one of our Editorial Board members will contact you promptly.
