Asian and Pacific Islander Interest Group

The APA Asian and Pacific Islander Interest Group seeks to connect and support Asian and Pacific Islander planners and communities.

Our goals include:

  • Increase the numbers of Asians and Pacific Islanders participating in planning in their communities
  • Provide a forum for planners to better understand the needs and desires of Asian and Pacific Islander communities
  • Facilitate planning processes to provide and improve results for Asian and Pacific Islander community residents and stakeholders
  • Support Asian and Pacific Islander planners and planning students in their career development
  • Build a diverse network for all planners to share their experiences and ideas relating to Asian and Pacific Islander communities
  • Collaborate with other APA Interest Groups and APA Divisions to address issues of significance to Asian and Pacific Islander communities
