Regulated members, either Registered Professional Planners (RPP) or Candidate members, may self-nominate or be nominated by others to serve on Council. Any number of Candidate members may be nominated for Councillor but no more than two Candidate members may serve at one time. All nominees for Councillor must submit a completed Councillor Nominee Declaration Form or President Elect Nominee Declaration Form signed by two Regulated members, neither of

If the number of nominees exceeds the number of vacant positions on Council, and/or the number of nominees for President Elect is two or more, ballots with voting instructions will be emailed in advance of the AGM to all APPI members eligible to vote with an electronic ballot link.
This year's AGM will be virtual on Thursday, April 28, 2022. Anyone considering serving on APPI Council should be aware that the 2022 APPI Council Strategic Retreat is scheduled for a weekend in late May or early June 2022. It has yet to be determined if the retreat will be hosted in-person or virtually, but there is an expectation that all members of Council participate in this Institute visioning exercise.
Thank you for your attention and participation in the governance of our professional Institute.
