APPI Bylaw Amendment 2017-1

The Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP) new bylaws changed the governance structure of CIP to one based on geographical regions, rather than appointments from the provincial institutes and associations. This means that APPI no longer has representation on the CIP Board of Directors, and APPI and CIP cease to have a legal accountability to each other.  It was legally recommended that APPI amend its bylaws, such that APPI no longer require its members to hold CIP membership, and consistent with that legal opinion, APPI Council is moving forward with the adoption of voluntary CIP membership for APPI members effective January 1, 2018.  In order to facilitate voluntary CIP membership for APPI’s members, the bylaws need to be amended to remove references to CIP, and specifically clause 7.10 which mandates CIP membership for APPI members.  All regulated members will be issued a ballot to vote on the bylaw amendment via mail on October 20, 2017, with a deadline for returning their ballots for receipt by the APPI office on or before November 20, 2017.  Regulated members are encouraged to inform themselves on the bylaw amendment and vote fed and vote on this bylaw amendment, the vote is being conducted via postal ballot. Assuming these bylaw amendments are passed, effective January 1, 2018, it will no longer be mandatory that APPI members also be members of CIP, but rather membership with CIP will be voluntary.
