Region Mission
The commitment of the professional membership has been the key to the success of CEFPI.

Current News

Branding Task Force
We are currently conducting a series of focus groups, surveys of members and non-members, and detailed research to measure the impact, relevance, and effectiveness of the current CEFPI brand. Our goal is to keep our association’s image, reputation, and recognition as the lead organization for excellence in planning schools. The Task Force feels it is imperative that our members at the region and chapter level participate in this process, so we are asking the boards of all of our regions and chapters to embrace this exercise, and help us promote and conduct the focus groups and survey process.
