Making Great Communities Since 1968

GPA Celebrates 50th Anniversary

The Georgia Planning Association is an official Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA). We’re a 1,100-plus member organization of professional planners and planning officials who serve Georgia’s communities in many ways, at all levels of government, the private sector and not-for-profit organizations. The GPA will continue to provide a place where planners can share their expertise and ideas with policymakers and the general public for the benefit of Georgia and its citizens.
