The nomination period for this year’s election for seats on the Arizona Chapter of the American Planning Association Board of Directors is now open.  There are a number of opportunities to serve both at the Chapter and Section level.  APA is now taking nominations for the following seats:

  • Arizona Chapter Director at Large
  • Arizona Chapter Director at Large

Arizona Sections

  • Southern Section Director
  • Southern Section Treasurer

Here is what our current board members have to say about serving:

"I serve because it is great networking and provides ways of staying up to date with planning issues in Arizona outside of the scope of our employment. I love getting to build relationships between planners in the Southern Section, as well as enhance the overall membership experience with events and proactive improvements." – Tristan Black-Colla, Southern Section Assistant Director

Retirement is the perfect time to serve on the Board of APA AZ!  You have more time to perform your duties without the pressures of career and young families.  Serving on the Board also allows you to stay in touch with people and the profession.” – Jerry Stabley, Chapter President

I volunteered for the Board to give back to the profession that helped build my passion and to continue to develop my leadership skills. From mentorship to volunteerism, networking and collaborating with fellow planners that are also passionate about our environment, there is always something I can learn from this organization. Serving on the Board is all about building our community together, inside and out!” – Carol Hu, Chapter Secretary & Treasurer
