MY PLAN IS SIMPLE: 6 POLICIES BELOW
CANADIAN INSTITUTE OF PLANNERS IS AT A FORMATIVE TIME OF EXCITING TRANSFORMATION.
I WOULD USE MY SKILLS AS A PROVEN NATIONAL LEADER TO EXPAND OUR INFLUENCES AND SERVE YOU.
OUTREACH. ADVOCACY. INNOVATION. PROSPERITY. RELEVANCE.
Smart and Friendly
The CIP should stands on these pillars to serve its mission as the voice of the planning profession and a resource for its members in service to society. We inspire the public, create consensus, and engage with our communities unlike any other profession.
CLIMATE CHANGE ACCOUNTABILITY.
A Smarter Tomorrow
Planners are qualified to evaluate risk and vulnerability, mitigate and adapt, and holistically design a robust, resilient future for society.
The First Step to Amazing
We have to prioritize an Equity movement for women, minorities, Canada's Indigenous communities and other underrepresented groups. We can dissolve insular boundaries within CIP and make better connections with academia, allied disciplines, and the public.
The Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP) must think boldly and inspirationally about our profession.
I would lead our effort explaining the mission and value of CIP.
WELL-BEING & SOCIAL EQUALITY.
The planning profession must both take part and reflect the communities in which it serves to stay relevant. Our workplaces can be a model of leadership development, energetic culture, flexibility and transparency, and engaged social commitment.
We should encourage leadership for students, Associates and emerging professionals, and help connect them to key initiatives in the Institute and in the profession.
Our profession is changing and we need to shift the way we practice to increase our relevance. We need to celebrate our diversity and include those who are pushing boundaries daily. Connecting with our membership is more important now than ever. We need to be ambitious and proactive.
