Western Planner News
Beginning in January 2017, interesting, relevant and informative articles related to Planning in the West will be available online for free. In fact, the WP website is now entirely reformatted for this purpose – check it out at www.westernplanner.org. The website will be funded through sponsorships. Depending on the sponsorship level, certain benefits are offered. When I, for example, donate $100 per year, I become a “Friend of Western Planner.” If I had a business, I would be entitled to two advertisements and recognition on the website for six months. Please note that the donation is tax deductible.
Starting January 2017, the Journal will no longer be printed or electronically published as a periodical. Instead, articles will be accessible to anyone online on our new website. New articles will be sent out several times a month. The articles will continue to be peer-reviewed and authors can receive AICP credits for publication.
It has been over a year since the Western Planner rolled out the digital version of the Journal. Results have been mixed. I could really get bogged down writing about our tight financial condition, but I would rather tell you how we are changing the world - at least the Western Planner world! The Western Planner Journal is going totally digital beginning in 2017.
