The Louisiana Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA LA) received a pilot grant from CPC LDC in July of 2011, in the amount of $500 for purpose of testing the effectiveness of a sponsorship/exhibit fee at an allied organization conference/event for the purpose of Chapter and APA membership promotion/expansion, interaction/training and networking.
