Planners Network Membership Survey
Are you a past, present or *prospective* Planners Network member? We want to hear from you!

This survey is a way of learning more about our membership base, how members would like to be involved and can best be supported by the Network, and the priorities that should inform our advocacy, programming and organizing together for the year(s) ahead.

It should just take a few minutes to complete (unless you're feeling inspired and want to share more!) and we really appreciate your input. If you'd like us to follow up or if you have any further questions, please let us know.

--- Initially launched in 2021, we received so many great responses that we decided to keep using this survey as an ongoing way to collect feedback, brainstorm and continue to start conversations and make connections! ---

CONTINUING THE CONVERSATION: ORGANIZATIONAL PRIORITIES ______________________________________________________________________
Amid a global pandemic, climate change, increasing inequalities and also inspiring movements for equality, including the movement for Black lives and other global uprisings, this is a pivotal moment in determining the direction of our collective future.

The Planners Network is a loose collective of people interested in progressive and radical perspectives on urban planning practice and urban issues, broadly defined. It was started in the 1970s as a response to urban renewal, and since then has continued to put forward alternatives to mainstream planning practice. Our members are professionals, activists, academics, and students involved in physical, social, economic, and environmental planning in urban and rural areas. PN has chapters in various cities across the US and Canada and conferences biannually when possible. Learn more:
