Chapter-Only Membership

APA-NC now offers the option of joining the Chapter without having to also join national APA. Chapter-Only membership is open to practicing planners, a professional in another field who is interested or involved in planning, an engaged citizen, academic professors, Elected & Appointed Officials, Students, and Citizens who are otherwise eligible for National APA membership but chooses not to be. The Chapter-only membership is a reasonably priced alternative for those who wish to become engaged in planning related issues, opportunities and events in North Carolina.

Chapter Only Members may not participate in National APA elections or hold National APA office, however, such members may vote in Chapter elections, serve on Chapter committees, and be elected to or hold a Chapter office other than Chapter President, Vice President, or Professional Development Officer.

Members of the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) must retain membership in the National Association and therefore are considered “regular members”.

Benefits of Chapter-only membership include:

• Chapter Newsletter
• APA-NC sponsored AICP training course
• Education Programs
• Section Activities
• Annual Awards
• Networking Opportunities
• Legislative initiatives
• Discounted Annual Conferences
• Chapter Website
