Honourary & Life Members

PIBC maintains two distinguished opportunities to recognize and honour both: individuals outside of the Institute's professional membership who have contributed significantly to planning or to the Institute (Honourary Membership); and accomplished, long-serving professional members of the Institute worthy of special distinction ("Life Member" designation). Please review the information below to learn more about these special recognition opportunities

Please Note: the call for submissions and nominations is now open! See below for details...

Honourary Membership:

Honourary Membership is the highest and most distinguished honour that PIBC can bestow upon an individual who themselves is outside the planning profession, but who has made a significant contribution to planning or to the Institute. It is a rare and prestigious honour which affords PIBC the opportunity to recognize such uniquely worthy individuals. The admission of any individual to Honourary Membership is made by PIBC Council in accordance with the Institute’s bylaws, and at their sole discretion.

"Life Member" Designation:

Designation as a “Life Member” is the highest and most distinguished honour that PIBC can bestow upon a long-serving professional member of the Institute who is worthy of significant recognition. It is a rare and prestigious honour developed by Council, which affords PIBC the opportunity to recognize such uniquely worthy members. The granting of the “Life Member” designation to a member is made by and at the discretion of PIBC Council, upon nomination of that member by at least two corporate members of the Institute.
