Members’ Newsletter July 2023

Dear Member

This Newsletter offers many opportunities for members to become involved in the Society’s work.

  • Submit a paper for the David Marlow Prize
  • Co-organise an event on the need for urban and regional planning to heed climate change
  • Offer to edit Volume 134 of the annual journal
  • Organise an members’ networking event on a subject of your choice
  • Generate content for any of our three websites.

Only one of the above requires a long-term commitment – the Editor needs to be available for a year. All the other roles can be short-term or casual.

The Newsletter has much other content besides.  The PDF of the Newsletter is available from this link – with appendices, it is 20 pages of interest (1.3MB).
