APPI Volunteer Recognition Program
APPI is a professional organization that is largely run by volunteers. APPI's Volunteer Recognition Program recognizes individual dedication and contributions to APPI and the planning profession more generally. You have the opportunity to nominate one of your colleagues for the contributions that they have made to the Institute in one of the following categories:
Outstanding Contribution to the Profession Award
This award recognizes long-term commitment to the Institute and volunteerism. Nominations are restricted to APPI regulated members who have a minimum ten years of service. Nominees must have demonstrated exemplary leadership and have contributed to the Institute in a number of capacities.
Volunteer of the Year Award
This award recognizes a significant contribution made in the previous year - 2017. This award is open to any member regulated or non-regulated. Nominees must have made an outstanding contribution to the Institute serving on an APPI Committee or initiative, or alternatively representing APPI on a specific project or initiative at the national level.
NEW THIS YEAR!
Exceptional Mentor Award
Have you have recently completed or are you in the midst of completing the RPP certification process and want to recognize and celebrate the contribution of your mentor in supporting your professional development and career? Please consider nominating a RPP member or member(s) who have gone above and beyond in their support of your journey through the certification process in any capacity.
Please forward the name of your nominee(s) to the APPI office stating the name of your nominee, which award you are nominating the member for and include a succinct description of their contribution and why the member is worthy of the award (250 words or less) by March 29, 2018. Please include your name and contact information for future follow-up.
The recipients will be honored at the APPI Volunteer Awards and Appreciation Celebration in Edmonton on Friday, April 27, 2018.
Help us recognize the many hard working volunteers who serve our Institute and the profession so exceptionally!
