In the Fall of 2015 the New York Upstate American Planning Association, in cooperation with the University of Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning, nominated Robert G. Shibley as a Fellow of the American Institute of Certified Planners. Bob is the Dean of UB’s School of Architecture and Planning, UB’s Architect, a Senior Fellow at the UB Regional Institute and holds numerous leadership roles in Western New York. On February 12, 2016 Bob was elected to the College of Fellows and will be honored at the National APA Conference in Phoenix! Bob has significant accomplishments in the planning and economic development fields over his 40 year career as outlined in the nomination including advancing, championing and quietly leading the revitalization of Buffalo and Western New York. As stated in NY Upstate’s nomination letter “ Bob’s greatest achievement is that he has instilled in each of us the belief that change is possible, planning matters and that as planners we should strive to help others achieve their goals.”
Congratulations to Bob on his well deserved recognition!! NY Upstate APA was honored to sponsor his nomination and thanks to Rachel Teaman from UB who authored and assembled the 12 pages of documentation to support the nomination.
