Around 100 Planners from across the North East came together for the region’s RTPI Members Reception in Gateshead which our Newcastle team were proud sponsors of.
Hosted by Newcastle Planning Associate and North East Regional Chair, Sam Thistlethwaite, alongside RTPI Chief Executive, Victoria Hills, the event gave delegates the opportunity to discuss the latest issues impacting the industry over a drink and hear about the wide range of events due to take place for members of the over next 12 months.
During the evening, Sam spoke to attendees about the importance of engagement among the region’s Planners and the significant role the private sector plays in raising the profile of the RTPI in the North East to new and existing members.
He added: “Events like this are incredibly important in bringing together the industry in the region so we can talk directly to each other, hear about what of each of us are facing in our roles in shaping the area, whilst also sharing the positive news and events that are planned for Planners here in the North East.”
Later this year, the North East will host the 2019 National Young Planners Conference, an event which our Newcastle team will also be sponsoring.
