APA/AICP Elections

2017 APA/AICP Consolidated Leadership Elections

In 2017, APA members will participate in elections for new members of the Board of Directors, AICP Commission, in addition to chapter, division and student leaders. Many APA chapters and most APA divisions are inviting nominations for leadership positions through this process as well.

Election to leadership is a great way to serve APA and the planning profession, expand your network, and meet new colleagues. If you are an AICP member, service as a leader in the organization is also eligible for CM credit.

The 2017 Election Policies and Procedures document, adopted by the Board of Directors in February, is a complete guide to the election process for Board members and Commissioners.

APA's call for nominations for potential candidates begins March 15, 2017. The deadline for candidates to submit materials online is May 15, 2017. If you have questions, email getinvolved@planning.org.

Potential candidates can submit their nominations here: https://apa.directnominations.net/.
