APPI Council Call for Nominations

The term of office for two members of the Alberta Professional Planners Institute (APPI) Council will conclude at the next Annual General Meeting (AGM) and nominees are required to fill these Councillor positions.  Both positions are for a two-year term commencing April 26, 2019.

Regulated members, either Registered Professional Planners (RPP) or Candidate members, may self-nominate or be nominated by others to serve on Council.

All nominees for Council that are not nominated by the APPI Nominating Committee must submit a completed Councillor Nominee Declaration Form, signed by two Regulated members, neither of whom may be the individual nominated, before the call for nominations closes.  Administration will contact all nominees to obtain a Nominee Platform, on or before Friday March 9, 2018.

All nominations must be filed with the Nominating Committee via the APPI Office on or before Thursday, February 28, 2019.

If the number of nominees exceeds the number of vacant positions, ballots with voting instructions and nominees’ platform sheets will be mailed in advance of the AGM to all APPI members eligible to vote.  This year's AGM is Friday April 26, 2019, in Calgary. Anyone considering serving on APPI Council should be aware that the 2019 APPI Council Strategic Retreat is scheduled for the weekend of May 24 – 26, 2019, at Pigeon Lake, Alberta, and there is an expectation that all members of Council attend this Institute visioning exercise.

APPI 2019 Member Fees

The 2019 member renewal invoices have been issued via email during the week of December 10, 2018.  Those invoices include the 2019 APPI fees, CIP fees, and the Professional Liability Insurance premium (for Candidate and RPP Members).  As per Bylaw Amendment 2017-1, membership with CIP is no longer mandatory for APPI members and at renewal time members are annually providing with the opportunity to decline CIP membership.

To opt out of CIP membership, please email [email protected], and you will be issued a revised 2019 member renewal invoice with the 2019 CIP fees removed.   Any APPI member who opts out of CIP membership for 2019 may at any time during 2019 or beyond, upon request to APPI, be reinstated as a member of CIP with no additional re-application or re-certification process or fees. 

It is important to note that while a member in any APPI class may opt out of CIP membership for 2019, regulated members who opt out should consider the following:
1. Right to the Registered Professional Planner (RPP) professional designation and protected title will be retained, but those opting out of CIP will cease to have the right to use MCIP, which is not required to maintain regulated professional practice in the APPI jurisdiction.
2. Participation in the APPI Professional Liability Insurance (PLI) Program will remain mandatory.
3. Compliance with the APPI Continuous Professional Learning (CPL) program will remain mandatory.

All APPI members, even those who opt out of CIP membership, will continue to report their CPL activities using the CIP reporting system.
