West Virginia - Almost Heaven Welcome to APA West Virginia
WV APA is the West Virginia state chapter of the American Planning Association (APA) Our organization is comprised of professional and citizen planners who work to support responsible planning throughout the state. Membership is open to professional planners employed in planning or a related field, lay planners who serve on planning commissions or boards of zoning appeals, student members who are enrolled in a course of study in planning or a related field, and citizens interested in planning for their communities.
Executive Committee Opening At Large Position
Dana Keith’s “at-large” spot on the executive board of the WV APA needs to be filled. The vote for that position will be at the December meeting and we are reaching out to members to see if there is any interest in putting your name in the hat for the nomination!
The commitment isn’t too much, they meet as an executive board monthly for one hour and usually try to split a few duties and attend at least one of the committee meetings as they are able. Let me know if you have any questions/interest/ or want to put anyone else up for nomination.
Monthly Newsletter November monthly newsletter is here!
Big thanks to Rickie, Jennie, and the committee members who have contributed to making this monthly update happen, but especially Rickie to putting it all together.
There are updates from the President, Legislative Committee, Membership Committee, Professional Development Committee, national APA policy, and the upcoming chapter meeting on December 1st.
If you have something you’d like included in the monthly newsletter, please reach out to Shae Strait or Rickie Yeager.
