Thanks to our Sponsors!

Each year APA-LA sends out a call for support to businesses, agencies and individuals throughout our state inviting their participation in promoting excellence in planning practice, and building political support for responsible planning in communities throughout our state. We achieve this by holding an annual conference, the location of which rotates among the Sections of our state in a four-year cycle, where we share knowledge, best practices, new ideas, and recognize achievements.
