Planning matters

It supports our everyday. From the clean water that keeps us healthy, to the food that nourishes our bodies and the energy that powers our lives.

Planning connects us with places to live, work, study and play – shaping our world and Australia’s future.

Anyone can be a planner

But not everyone can do what our qualified planners can. So it’s important to recognise that difference with a PIA membership.
