Who We Are

About 500 people belong to Planners Network including professional planners, community activists, academics, and students. If you are a member already, an Individual Member Directory, updated bi-annually, is available to members at the Member Directory page.

PN attempts to make decisions in as democratic and public a fashion as possible. It is led by a Steering Committee, which is elected by the membership and has full responsibility for the finances and actions of the organization. The Steering Committee works with members to create smaller committees, which work on specific issues like publications, conferences or chapters. These committees are chaired by a member of the Steering Committee and are open to all members. The committees make recommendations to the Steering Committee and work directly on issues related to their mandate.

Elections to the Steering Committee, and changes to the by-laws, are made through a vote of the members of PN. Each active member has one vote, and votes are conducted either at an annual meeting or through notification by mail and email.
