If you haven’t heard, the Georgia Planning Young Planners Group (YPG) is off to a roaring start. In recognition of the fact that young professionals throughout Georgia are faced with a common and unique set of challenges when just beginning their careers, the Georgia Planning Association (GPA) decided to focus on YPG needs and well….here we are.
We intend for the YPG to be comprised of up and coming planning leaders and innovative thinkers. The YPG provides a forum for networking, learning new skills, and above all, having fun. Our meetings will be a combination of social events and technical discussions, taking place in informal settings. We will bring in people who have been involved in planning (both from the public and private sectors) for several years, to interact with YPG members and to provide information geared toward young professionals.
The YPG is open to planning professionals age 35 and under and to students. Experienced planners are encouraged to participate as educators and mentors to YPG members. Membership in the YPG is free with a paid APA membership and we encourage those not yet a member of APA to become involved.
