Congratulations to Planning & Development Review Director Cymone Haiju!
The American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) is the American Planning Association's professional institute. AICP certifies professionals in the United States in the field of urban planning and assists planners in the areas of ethics, professional development, planning education, and the standards of planning practice. AICP Certification is the only nationwide, independent verification of planners' qualifications. Once certified, professional planners may place the designation "AICP" after their name to indicate their membership in AICP, and their mastery of the principles, skills, knowledge, and experience determined by the organization as essential for a professional planner.
To become certified, a planner must have a specified combination of relevant planning education and years of professional experience, must pass an examination that tests skills and knowledge, must pay an annual fee, and must be a member of the American Planning Association in good standing. The AICP certification exam is offered twice a year for two weeks, in May and November. Yesterday, Cymone Haiju took her AICP exam and passed and will soon receive her AICP certificate and induction into the American Institute of Certified Planners!
