APPI Council

Call for Nominations

The term of office for one (1) member of the Alberta Professional Planners Institute (APPI) Council will conclude at the next Annual General Meeting (AGM).  In addition, to assist in the Institute’s leadership succession planning, the decision has been made to add one member to Council in April of 2023, in compliance with the Institute’s bylaws.  Nominees are required to fill these two Councillor positions, for two-year terms commencing April 27, 2023. 
The APPI Nominating Committee is tasked with the duty of presenting the membership with a slate of nominees for vacant positions on Council, and the Committee is actively recruiting potential volunteers at this time. For a detailed Council job description click here.  If you are interested in running for a position on APPI Council, or if you would like additional information about serving on APPI Council, please contact the APPI Office. 

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 the applicable completed Councillor Nominee Declaration Form signed by two Regulated members, neither of whom may be the individual nominated, before the call for nominations closes.
