“Planning Positivity” for the Holidays

By Della Acosta, AICP, October 14, 2020

This year has been different for all of us, and our holidays will be different, too. While November typically brings us together for a holiday celebration, this year we will be connecting in a different way for our annual gathering.

Instead of a single night of celebration, we want each of you, our Northern Section members, to share what made this year special for you and your teams, your families, and your communities.

Share your stories of #PlanningPositivity.

Starting November 18th, log onto the Northern Section website or follow our social media sites on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Instagram to share your #PlanningPositivity photos, memes, videos, news, and stories using the hashtag.

Share positive, wholesome, radically amazing, or just plain “good planning-related” events, experiences, projects, or ideas that occurred in 2020 that you want to celebrate together. Together we will bring to light the good in our lives to share with others and spread the joy we still know exists in the world.

Then, to wrap up our month-long #PlanningPositivity campaign, we’ll host a live virtual event with raffle prizes for planners who shared their stories, key speakers, games, and socializing, and more!

So share your stories of #PlanningPositivity using the hashtag. Tag others and share with your own networks to spread the light farther — maybe even win some prizes along the way.

We know this year has been difficult. Let’s celebrate what’s made it special.
