In his years of service to APA, he changed the way APA operates, particularly with respect to legislation and policy and in telling the planning story. His work on the Legislative and Policy Committee altered the form, shape, and quality of APA's advocacy efforts on a local and national basis. Ralph established the means for planners to more effectively communicate about planning. He has given back to the profession with these outstanding contributions. Inducted 2010.
