Updated APA Membership Welcomes the Next Generation of Planners

By Monica Groh, APA Director of Emerging Professionals

Big changes are coming to the American Planning Association!  Beginning on July 11, APA student membership will be free to any full- or part-time student actively matriculated in any university or college degree program. APA also will offer two years of reduced dues to help bridge the gap between university and professional life.  First-time members will enjoy discounted introductory rates as well.

PHOENIX,AZ - The Crescent City Shapers, the University of New Orleans’ student organization for planning and urban studies students, represented UNO and the state of Louisiana by traveling to the APA National Planning Conference in Phoenix. This year’s group was comprised of eleven Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) students, five of whom also traveled with the Shapers to Seattle for last year’s conference. Louisiana APA helps sponsor the Shapers’ trip annually to allow Louisiana’s future planners to experience the benefits of such an event.
