Call for Nominations!

The Alabama Chapter of the American Planning Association (AL-APA), through its Annual Awards Program, seeks to recognize the notable contributions and achievements of planning professionals, elected or lay persons, the media and our state planning students. Additionally, the chapter seeks to recognize outstanding planning programs, plans and projects prepared and implemented by local governments, private consultants, as well as other local organizations and agencies throughout the state.

The Chapter Awards Committee would like to announce that nominations for the 2020 Awards Program are now being accepted! The deadline for accepting nominations is Friday, July 31, 2020 at 5 p.m. CST. The Pandemic has created a unique set of circumstances. At this point, it seems likely that this year’s conference will be digital and consequently, so will the awards ceremony. Nevertheless, we remain committed to our mission.

Please review the Awards Program Categories and Nominations Criteria carefully (linked below). It contains nomination submission information and contacts for questions information.

The Awards Committee encourages anyone who knows of any worthy persons, projects, programs or plans to give serious consideration to submitting a nomination for this year’s awards program. The awards program information including the awards categories, nomination criteria and submission information is available in the 2020 Awards Program Categories and Nomination Criteria.
