I am not currently an AICP member, failed just by a whisker 2 years ago should be retaking it this year. I work for a Planning Board for a County in which there are 3 planners including myself and a supervising planner over the 3 of us all doing land development review. Myself and another planner do not have AICP/PP licenses and neither does the supervising planner. The other planner, though I have asked for proof of her involvement with AICP or proof of passing the tests for AICP or PP, has not produced them to me and I cannot find her name under the AICP/APA search. If you aren't an active memeber you aren't a member at all, am I correct?
I need help because she really isn't a great planner, but she signs everything; her staff reports, letters, and even receives mail with AICP/PP attached to her name. I don't think this is ethical, however, I do not have any power as an equal co-worker to do anything about it. I've brought it up to the director and it corrected itself momentarily but she's back to doing it. When I DO get my license later this year I want it to mean something and here is someone saying she has it and really doesn't using it to get false resepct from developers.
Please PM me for more info if you need it and any advice you can give me, Thanks.
