The Urban Design and Preservation Division is renewing its mentorship program for 2018-19. The service operates like a matchmaker, linking interested members with professionals in the Division. Through this service, one can ask questions, obtain career advice, and discuss current issues in urban design, historic preservation, and other related topics. Division leadership will make matches based on areas of interest and experience rather than geographic area.


The 2018-2019 Mentorship Program will run from October to May. Mentors and mentees are expected to interact at a minimum of three times during that time period. Possible interactions may be reviewing a mentee's resume, sharing current projects, participating in a Division webinar, or reading a book together. Mentors are eligible for AICP CM Credit for Pro Bono Planning Service. All matches will be encouraged to write an article on the future of planning, preservation, and design for the Summer 2019 Division Newsletter.


If you have any questions about the program, please contact Lauren Trice, AICP, Chair-Elect, at info.apaudp@gmail.com.
