World Town Planning Day Online Conference Liaison

The WTPD Online Conference Liaison serves on the WTPD Online Conference organizing committee on behalf of the International Division. This is an important and rewarding position that will give you the opportunity to collaborate with planning professionals from around the world. You must have a degree of time flexibility in order to accommodate meetings that are scheduled for attendees from around the world. It is possible for the meetings to be very early in the morning or late at night. The committee convenes every year around February or March and run until mid-November. The workload starts off light and increases as the conference date approaches. This position presents a tremendous opportunity to be involved in a major division initiative and to get to know many international planners and projects.
