Volunteers required for consideration as APPI nominees to the Calgary Planning Commission (CPC) and Calgary Urban Design Review Panel

APPI has been invited to put forward non-binding nominations for potential appointment to the Calgary Planning Commission and the Calgary Urban Design Review Panel.  If you are a Registered Professional Planner (RPP) and interested in being considered as one of APPI’s non-binding nominations to serve in one of these capacities, please send an email to the APPI office confirming your interest and attach both a cover letter and a personal resume of no more than two single-sided pages by 3:00 PM on Thursday,  August 29, 2019.  Click here for the Calgary Planning Commission bylaw and here for the Calgary Urban Design Review Panel terms of reference. 
APPI thanks all interested members for their willingness to represent their professional institute, and Calgary City Council has expressed a desire to receive multiple nominations for these positions.   The final selection of appointees will be made by Calgary City Council.

Professional Designations and the Use of RPP

APPI’s RPP members have rights and responsibilities defined in both the Alberta Professional Planner Regulation and APPI’s bylaws.
With the goal of aiming for a consistent approach across Canada, the  various Provincial, Territorial Institutes and Associations (PTIA’s), including APPI, have committed to encouraging RPP members to members to adopt the practice of listing the ‘RPP' designation immediately following their name, followed by ‘MCIP’- RPP, MCIP- where applicable and when also denoting the national affiliation with CIP.   Click here for further information.
