Outreach and Communication Committee

What we Do:
We are a committee with many subcommittees who focus on tasks such as publication material, updating and managing the Chapter website, editing and publishing the quarterly newsletter, Planning Matters, developing relationships with allied professionals, and educating the general public on what we do as planners.

To serve as ambassadors for the planning profession by improving the visibility, understanding, and appreciation of the planning profession through education outreach, and facilitating collaboration.

In order to fulfill our mission, the Outreach and Communication Committee will engage public officials, allied professions, students, educators, interest groups, the media, the public at large, and planning professions and focus on the following strategies in five core areas: 1. Building relationships with allied professions, 2. Providing planning related education and information to the general public, 3. Coordinating volunteer efforts on behalf of the chapter, 4. Actively disseminate relevant information to the membership, 5. Provide forums to connect members to each other.  For detailed information, see our Action Plan.
