Do you want to be involved? Can you give a little of your time? If the answer is yes, you can be an ECU Planning Ambassador!

A Planning Ambassador would carry out at least THREE engagement activities.

  • Attend a ‘Student Planners Action Network’ (SPAN) meeting at ECU
  • Carry out NC-APA’s ‘PlanIt Kids!’ activity at a local school in your community
  • Attend an ECU Open House with planning faculty and students
