    Professional designation and environmental impact assessment

    Good day all,

    I was considering applying to become a provisional member with APPI however I am not positive if my current profession would fall under 'planning'.

    I am currently employed with an environmental consulting firm where my primary role is conducting environmental impact assessment for proposed projects. My education would probably fall under 'related degree'.

    Any thought?

    Cheers

    You can call yourself an environmental planner. Perfectly legitimate.

    Yes, you should be able to become a provisional member of APPI/CIP without much of an issue - impact assessment is a recognized discipline within planning. Gaining full membership may be a bit of a lengthier process (additional exam and worklog requirements for those without a recognized planning degree).
