President's Message 

Welcome to the official site of the Arkansas Chapter of the American Planning Association!

I am honored to serve as Chapter President in 2020.

The APA AR Chapter offers two conferences  a year, one in the spring and one in the fall.

Unfortunately, we had to cancel our spring conference, but for the fall conference, we are excited and honored to partner with the Kansas, New Mexico, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas Chapters on a virtual conference October 5-9

Please continue to share the benefits of APA membership and communicate with us what is going on in your community. Let us know what we as a Chapter can do to better serve the Arkansas planning community.

As always, thank you for your time and support of the APA Arkansas Chapter!
