World Town Planning Day - Celebrating the Profession

We are pleased to be bringing back our annual celebration of World Town Planning Day, marking the achievements of the planning profession and our professional members. This signature gala evening event is returning for the first time since 2019!

World Urbanism Day, also known as "World Town Planning Day", was founded in 1949 by the late Professor Carlos Maria della Paolera of the University of Buenos Aires, to advance public and professional interest in planning. It is celebrated in more than 30 countries on four continents each November 8th. It is a special day to recognize and promote the role of planning in creating livable communities.

At this returning annual event, the Institute is inviting all new Registered Professional Planners (RPPs) from the past two years; members who have recently achieved the milestone of holding Certified member status for 25 years or more; and other special guests to attend and receive recognition in person.

RSVP has now closed for year's Gala reception and dinner. Please see the livestream link below for an option to attend the event virtually.
