This is an idea that I'd like to see in Canada, I know it exists in Australia, but what about the USA? Europe?
In Australia, they have a section of the Australian Institute of Planners dedicated to young planners. These are students AND recent graduates and they target events specific to them (if I'm wrong here, please correct me).
There's nothing like that in Canada. there is a student component to CIP (Canadian Institute of Planners) but after graduation there is little support in terms of networking, getting jobs, etc. Some regions have mentoring, but even then its limited.
Does the US have anything like this? How about the U.K? Anywhere else? I'm planning on bringing up the subject at a future meeting of the Planning Institute of British Columbia (subset to CIP) to see what their opinion is - what's yours and what would you like to see included in such a thing?
