Every two years the Chapter gives awards to outstanding projects, people, and organizations for exemplary achievement in the planning field. The next awards ceremony will be held in 2020. A list of the 2018 awardees is below. Visit this link for a list of past of awards and awardees. 

An awards committee solicits nominations for awards, selects a jury to review entrees, and organizes a biennial event. In addition, the President (with approval of the Board) may confer awards upon members who have made outstanding contributions to the Chapter or the planning profession.
