® was established in 1949 to promote
professional excellence in the practice of planning. As part of
a dynamic, varied and challenging profession, our members are
involved in strategic planning initiatives and implementation
of urban and rural plans. Planning is a complex profession
requiring the input of a variety of different disciplines.
Planners work in cities, suburbs, and towns and can specialise
in, for example, transportation, urban design, or rural
environments. They are students, consultants, planning
directors, teachers, lawyers, and planning commissioners and
each and everyone contributes to our communities, the Institute
and planning practice.
