Michael is a Registered Professional Planner (Ontario), proud member & volunteer of CIP, and a Certified Environmental Professional (EP) with over 20 years experience in community planning.

Expression of Interest

My goal is to place CIP as a thought leader on emerging topics like climate change, healthy communities, and Indigenous planning. This will help members to continue pursuing good planning and ensure the CIP Board is well informed.

I have been a member of CIP since 2000 and an active volunteer since 2011. My experience includes:
Council Member – OPPI (4 years)
Committee Chair – CIP (6 years)
Program Committee Chair – Lakeland District OPPI (5 years)

While a volunteer, Michael has experienced first-hand the need for CIP to be:
A thought leader for good planning, including emerging topics
A visible and proactive advocate on planning policy
More visible presence through digital and print marketing
An Institute with a proud and loyal membership
CIP has an amazing opportunity to be a thought leader in Canada and internationally! With three new/updated Policies being released this summer, the time is now for CIP to be that leader! I will be YOUR champion for Ontario District at the Board table.Together, this will demonstrate the value and pride we all want for our CIP brand! Thank you for your support!
