Who We Are

The Montana Association of Planners (MAP) is an association of professional planners, from public and private entities; planning board members and interested citizens. Though most often associated with guiding future land use and development, local planning efforts also include planning for public facilities and service needs, historic preservation, environmental protection, transportation, parks and recreation, and economic development. Planning provides options and tools for communities to achieve their vision of the future. MAP takes no position for or against growth, but rather promotes planning as a positive and proactive way to address change in our communities.

Our mission is to advocate excellence in planning that creates and sustains diverse, active and engaged communities, economies and landscapes. We strive to achieve this by:

  • Empowering a diverse membership;
  • Providing professional development opportunities; and
  • Putting planning knowledge into the hands of citizens and elected officials.
