APPI Council Highlights

APPI Council met on Saturday, October 2 prior to the annual conference in Jasper and discussed the progress we’ve been making in a number of areas.  One of these is to reach out to APPI members with regular updates about what Council does. Our objectives are to reveal the mechanisms of Council governance, demonstrate some of the activities we pursue on APPI members’ behalf, and build a broader and more solid understanding of the roles and values of planning.
