To continue to broaden and strengthen our networks both nationally and internationally, we encourage existing Academicians to nominate suitable people from across the urbanism spectrum to become Academicians.

Current Academicians, please also use this form to nominate people you know to become Academicians. Include as many of the nominee’s contact details as you can, as well as further details on why you think they would make a good addition to the Academy.
