For Commissioners

Great Planning Commissions Make Great Communities Happen

APA is every commissioner's best source for training, continuing education, resources, and support in the planning field.

If you serve on a community board, such as the planning commission, zoning board of appeals, or design review, you may join APA at a special discounted rate and become part of a national network of officials, planners, advocates, and students working to make great communities.

Enroll Your Commissioners as APA Planning Board Members

Connect your planning commission with APA and they'll connect to a nationwide community dedicated to good planning. APA gives commissioners tested tools — publications, training events, networking opportunities, and other targeted resources — that will help your community anticipate and plan for tomorrow.
