Awards and Recognition

Volunteer Recognition Program

APPI is a professional organization that is largely run by volunteers. APPI's Volunteer Recognition Program recognizes individual dedication and contributions to APPI and the planning profession more generally. You have an opportunity to nominate one of your colleagues for the contributions that they have made to the Institute in one of the following categories:

Outstanding Contribution to the Profession Award

This award recognizes long term commitment to the Institute and volunteerism. Nominees must have demonstrated exemplary leadership and have contributed to the Institute in a number of capacities. Nominations are restricted to APPI regulated members who have a minimum of ten years of service.

Volunteer of the Year Award

This award recognizes a significant contribution made in the previous year. This award is open to any member regulated or non-regulated. Nominees must have made an outstanding contribution to the Institute serving on an APPI Committee or initiative, or alternatively representing APPI on a specific project or initiative at the national level.

New this Year! Exceptional Mentor Award

Have you have recently completed or are you in the midst of completing the RPP certification process and want to recognize and celebrate the contribution of your mentor in supporting your professional development and career?  Please consider nominating a RPP member or member(s) who have gone above and beyond in their support of your journey through the certification process in any capacity.
