An Evening with Fellows of AICP

October 20, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


The New Jersey Chapter of the American Planning Association is pleased to present “An Evening with Fellows of AICP” on Thursday, October 20th from 4pm-6pm in the Special Events Forum at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy in New Brunswick.  A reception will follow at Garden State Ale House (appetizers will be provided and there will be a cash bar).  There is no charge for this event.

Election to Fellow is one of the highest honors that the American Institute of Certified Planners bestows upon a member.  Fellows of AICP are honored in recognition of the achievements of the planner as an individual, elevating the Fellow before the public and the profession as a model planner who has made significant contributions to planning and society. 

Join us and hear from four of New Jersey’s distinguished Fellows and the ups and downs of their respective careers.  There will be a question and answer period to follow.  Emerging professionals and students are strongly encouraged to attend.
