Get Involved

There is a constant need for progressives to work together to oppose forces that increase the injustices and inequities in our world. PN’s hundreds of members receive and contribute to the Progressive Planning magazine, communicate with on-line listservs and an e-newsletter, take part in annual conferences, and organize locally in PN chapters. Whether face-to-face, in print, or online, PN’ers are part of a network that shares progressive ideas and experiences. Here’s how you can get involved.

Become a Member

Join PN by paying annual dues and receive the monthly E-newsletter, quarterly magazine Progressive Planning, a discount to the PN Conference, and contribute to a planning organization that consistently promotes economic, social and environmental justice.

Join the Email Listservs

The listservs are free ways to receive information and network with PN members and other progressive planners.

Participate in the Conference

The PN annual conference is an opportunity to meet progressive planners from around the world. Sign up as a participant, or even better, help organize a conference session or community workshop about a planning issue important to you.

Contribute to the Website and Magazine

Anyone can submit news or information to the website. After being reviewed by an administrator, submissions are posted online and included in the e-newsletter. Progressive Planning magazine also welcomes articles from new contributors.

Become a PN University Representative

Help introduce students and faculty to PN and progressive planning by serving as a PN representative at your university.

Join or Start a Local Chapter

Get involved locally by contributing to a PN chapter or activist planning group in your community. Chapters enable people interested in progressive planning to come together at the local level and organize around common interests, while linking to a larger network.
