In this Annual Review, the first of its kind for the Institute, we share with you some of the highlights, activities and achievements of the past year, (2015).
The RTPI does a huge amount every year. We have 23,000 members in more than 80 countries and we try to meet their diverse needs. We publish advice, guidance, reports, and research; we respond to Government policies and reports; we devise policy; we run hundreds of events, including seminars and the Planning Convention, as well as CPD training and workshops; we promote planning as a career to students and schools, we attend national and international meetings and conferences; we hold awards ceremonies and competitions to recognise the best in planning; we promote RTPI work and the planning profession to the media; we publish our own excellent journal, Planning Theory & Practice, and The Planner magazine. The RTPI works tirelessly to raise the profile of planning across the UK and beyond. Just a small part of these activities will be highlighted in this report.
