I would start of really modestly because you will find-of course- that the busy day jobs of you and your fellow planners will intrude.
To make your meetings more interesting I would follow the principles of a book group and discuss an interesting planning/business or general text at each meeting
If you find that this way of working works, then you should gradually think of formalising things even more-and that's when money is needed, therefore probably membership fees, therefore probably a paid for secretary like our esteemed Steve Martin.
If you find that you want to organise evening events, talks, even in time an awards like our biennial APG Planning Awards, then my advice would be to focus on one thing a year and not to overstretch nor overreach yourselves. It is disheartening and demoralising when big planns come to nothing.
In the short term we can of course help by carrying details of your APG on our website (please get in touch with Steve Martin on firstname.lastname@example.org), and in other ways which you should define as you feel your way towards what it is that you want to do.
Any way best of luck and best wishes...and remember, just do it!!!"

i've been doing so many things lately, that i go to sleep really tired, i wake up really tired, and actually last night i was so tired, i couldn't even sleep. Which is why all day today i've had this song in my head. Which is anyway slightly better then when i wake up mumbling songs such as "Blue Velvet" or "The man who sold the world". But the good part is that i don't feel exhausted or something, it's a sort of a really exciting and energetic tiredness, if that makes any sense.
In the mean time however, i am trying to finish the huge post about Ben and Kingsley's wonderful visit.
