Big changes are coming to the American Planning Association! Beginning on July 11, APA student membership will be free to any full- or part-time student actively matriculated in any university or college degree program. APA also will offer two years of reduced dues to help bridge the gap between university and professional life. First-time members will enjoy discounted introductory rates as well.
The GPA Chapter President recommends to the GPA Chapter Board of Directors that the Chapter dues increase from $35 per year to 20% of APA National membership dues, and that Chapter-only single memberships be increased from $35 to $60 per year. Board approval will be sought at a meeting in July 2017, which will lead to a Chapter-wide vote to occur at the Annual Meeting in September 2017. This will allow for implementation by January 1, 2018.
