We are very pleased to announce the San Diego Section of the American Planning Association’s Young Planner’s Group Mentorship Program 2013 Mentors and Protégés of the Year

  • Bill Chopyk, Mentor of the Year
  • Carolina Gregor, Mentor of the Year
  • Mina Brown, Protégé of the Year
  • Regina Ochoa, Protégé of the Year

These awards were established to recognize participants in the YPG Mentorship & Education Program who have gone above and beyond the commitment required by the program to ensure the effective exchange of professional expertise and innovative planning practice. Award winners were honored at Planner’s Night Out with the YPG on Oct. 24, 2013.

The YPG Mentorship & Education Program was established in 2012 with the goal to successfully match YPG members and students with experienced planners for guidance and support, while offering mentors an opportunity to strengthen ties with future leaders of the planning community and APA.

The 2014 SDAPA YPG Mentorship Program will launch in January. Applications for the program will be made available in November 2013 on www.sdapa.org and via email. If you have questions about the YPG or the mentorship program or would like to receive more information, please email sdapaypg@gmail.com.
