Dennis Egner, FAICP

For almost 25 years, Denny Egner has contributed to the professional development of planners through cutting-edge workshops and conference sessions that have inspired hundreds of planners in the Northwest. When Oregon’s landmark planning program was threatened by a ballot measure, Denny produced public events and programs emphasizing the benefits of planning. He also focused on educating citizen planners, and produced 27 planning commissioner training videos. During his 14 years on APA Oregon’s Executive Board, the Oregon Chapter received two Karen B. Smith Chapter Achievement awards as the nation’s outstanding APA chapter, a recognition due in no small part to Egner’s efforts. Inducted in 2016.
