2021 APPI Planning Awards Virtual Celebration
Thursday October 21, 2021 12:00 PM – 12:30 PM MDT
The APPI Planning Awards acknowledge meritorious plans and projects, undertaken in whole or in part by members of the Institute, that significantly contribute to the livability of communities in Alberta, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
Please join APPI to celebrate the recipients of the 2021 Planning Awards and the exemplary planning undertaken within the planning profession.
APPI will continue to host the Planning Awards virtually. Given APPI’s vast geographical jurisdiction, celebrating the Planning Awards virtually allows the Institute to maximize participation by the award recipients, the membership at large, planning stakeholders and champions of good planning.
Registration is free, however, online pre-registration is required prior to Thursday October 21, 2021 at 11:00 AM. Using the link in the email confirmation, please register directly via GoTo Webinar prior to the date and time of the webinar. This will ensure you will receive a reminder notification.
