NOMINATIONS OPEN FOR MAP AWARDS Time to think about your nominations for MAP Awards!
Every year, planners and their work are acknowledged through the Maine Association of Planners (MAP) awards program. The program is designed to recognize a special person, organization, or project for its contribution to the field of planning. Award categories are Citizen Planner, Professional Planner, Project or Program of the Year, and Plan of the Year.
The Awards Committee is actively seeking nominations for this year which will be awarded at the MAP Annual Meeting in the spring. You can find the criteria and nomination form on the AWARDS page (link below).
