    How about...

    ... Royal order of Mooses and FAICP? NHPlanner - care to help out with a doctored logo?

    One thing that sickens me about AICP --> They are dying for new membership. I have been eligible for the exam for five years, and every year for the last three they send me a "this is your last chance" letter. Uuggghh! If you can't manage a database how can you be a certified planner? Oh wait - thats right - most folks that work there aren't....

    Chiming In...

    What I find more aggravating than the AICP itself is how many employers in the public sector look for the accredidation in hiring candidates.

    How I taken it yet? No, though I have been eligible for a while.

    Will I? Yes, because it translates into a bigger paycheck and acceptance/arrival from the uniformed.

    The AICP is not, nor ever will be, on the same level as P.E. or A.I.A. The AICP is a multiple choice test. The test given by High School Guidance Counselors has greater merit than the AICP...and is certainly more useful. (BTW, I was slated to be a house painter until this planning gig fell in my lap.)

    Cyburbia reception

    Well, as it turns out, I too will be in Chicago for the National Conf. The mohawk is gone, as are the rippling abs, but I should be somewhat recognizable.

    Kentucky is also hosting a reception at Harry Carry's on tuesday, I think. After the bash in New Orleans we threw, this may be scaled down a bit. Folks not in the Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana chapters should be welcome, but will have to pay for drinks.

    Just to toot my own horn, check out our discussion page, http://www.kapa.org/kydisc_toc.htm mostly rural planning Q & A.

    See you at the House of Blues on Sunday.

    Lets get the party started

    I think am going to enjoy Sunday. ... and Prudence will remind me to bring the black cap so you'll be sure to spot us in the crowd at House of Blues.

    Unfortunately we won't be able to join you on Tuesday. Right after we present our session we have to race back home for the inauguration of our new Mayor (whomever the hell that will be) to be followed by our Plan Commission meeting. Dang I hate conferences close to home...

    NHPlanner -

    You forgot to add my two friends and El Guapo's drinking buddy. It's not much of a party with them...
