Congratulations Illinois members that passed the May 2021 AICP Exam!

Updated: Mar 8, 2022

We're proud of these Illinois planners for not only passing the AICP Exam but also studying in the middle of a pandemic and pivoting to an online exam! Go ahead and add the skill "tenacity" to your LinkedIn profile, you've earned it! The next time you see them online or in person, be sure to give them an virtual high-five or elbow bump and say congratulations!
