Where Are We?

Distribution map of APA Chapter membership across Louisiana

I've just received the monthly Chapter membership list from the American Planning Association (December 2014) and I thought it would be interesting to geocode the list. This static map zoomed in to Louisiana shows the result - without revealing any personal data. A complete membership map expands to most of the United States as shown below. Yellow dots are in-state members, while blue dots are those out of state. A few of these folks are APA staff in Chicago or D.C. and are not really Louisiana Chapter members.

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Today your Chapter Executive Committee sent a letter to Mr. Jim Drinan, Executive Director of APA asking him to consider New Orleans as the venue for the 2018 National Planning Conference. This opportunity arose after indecision occurred in Florida, between Miami and Orlando. The Louisiana Chapter is simply requesting to host the 2018 conference in New Orleans. The letter is a PDF file which you may view here.
