Board and Commission Election Schedule and Composition

APA conducts elections for new Board and Commission members every two years. About half of positions in each body are up for election in each cycle. Balloting occurs during the summer of odd-numbered years. New Board and Commission members’ terms begin on January 1 of even-numbered years.

Below are the terms for Board and Commission members as of January 1, 2020. Board members and Commissioners serve staggered four-year terms, except for council chairs who serve two-year terms. Also, the President-Elect serves for one year and President-Elect, two years as President, and one year as Past President. Liaisons to the AICP Commission serve two-years terms.

In odd-numbered years, the call for nominations goes out to members before the National Planning Conference, for interested candidates.
