WHY DONATE?

  • Exclusive Content by Planners For Planners: We are unique in that our content is written by actual planners in the West who understand the challenges of planning in the West. Our articles are reviewed by peers and writers have the opportunity to receive AICP CM credits. We are working to make all of our articles published since 1979 accessible to our readers.
  • Sharing of Ideas through Networking: We provide networking, sharing of ideas and practical planning methods at our annual conference co-hosted with a different state planning association each year. By co-hosting with a state planning association, we are able to keep costs low, making it easier for more planners, facing dwindling budgets, to attend, and are able to attract a wider range of speakers.
  • Readership of Planners in 13 Western States: The Western Planner readers are decision-makers in planning in state, county and local governments, as well as a wide range of consultants working with communities. Our list continues to grow at over 2,300 with readership primarily based in 13 Western states but growing to include surrounding states.
