The AICP Outstanding Student Award recognizes outstanding attainment in the study of planning by students graduating from Planning Accreditation Board–accredited planning programs during the academic year of the award. Students are selected by a jury at their respective schools. To see a full list of this year’s winners, please visit https://www.planning.org/
Consider joining our study group to prepare for the AICP test in November! We will use existing resources such as the AICP site, Planning Prep and information from our colleagues who have taken the test and divide by planning subject to make for efficient studying. Most communication and sharing will be via email; there will be just a few meetings in person to initially divide the materials and also test each other toward the end.

Designed for planners, aspiring entrepreneurs, foodies, and culture seekers, Young Involved Philadelphia is excited to announce a new 3-part series exploring commercial corridors at various stages of their development with a different corridor featured on a bi-monthly basis.
Tours will include stops along the corridor where business owners — well-established or just beginning — will share their personal stories of why they chose their current location, and how they set up shop. For our first tour, we will be working with NKCDC to feature businesses along Lower Frankford Ave, one of the fastest growing commercial corridors in Philadelphia over the last 10 years.
