Mission & Goals

YPG members are emerging planning leaders and innovative thinkers. The YPG is open to all planning professionals and to students. Experienced planners are encouraged to participate as educators and mentors to YPG members.

The YPG provides a forum for networking, learning new skills, and above all, having fun. Our meetings will be a combination of social events and technical discussions, taking place in informal settings. We will bring in people who have been involved in planning (both from the public and private sectors) to interact with YPG members and to provide information geared toward emerging professionals.

The Georgia YPG’s mission is to help emerging planners establish social and professional relationships both with their peers and with experienced planning professionals. Through career building programs, social events, and mentoring opportunities, the Georgia YPG will promote the planning profession.
