    Long time planner - New to this Forum

    Greetings, professional planner since 1987right out of undergraduate school with a Geography Degree! AICP member since 1996. Held only three jobs (Consulting 3 years, Regional Sr. Planner for 10 years, Local Government Planning Director for 11 years, Town Manager for 1 year and currently employed as such).

    Willing to give my two cents on the profession, job opportunities, what is looked for and how to survive in this profession once hired.

    Looking forward to some lively discussion on this site!!

    Welcome from SW OH!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    Hello, from Dallas, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
