Signatures needed for a petition to become an APA Division

apa-figlogo-1102.png

In October and November, 173 APA-FIG members completed our online survey to gauge interest in pursuing Division status. About 94% of respondents think APA-FIG should become an official Division of the APA.

Based on this feedback, the APA-FIG Leadership Committee is pursuing status as an APA Division. The next step to making this happen is completing APA’s official petition: https://planning.org/divisions/groups/food/petition/.

To support this effort, please indicate your commitment to joining the proposed Division by signing this petition (note: you must be an APA member to sign the petition). We will need 300 signatures.

Please spread the word and help us make this happen.

Thanks,

APA-FIG Leadership Committee

APA-FIG Survey 2017 – Interest in Pursuing APA Division Status

The APA-FIG Leadership Committee is interested in pursuing Division status. Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey (https://goo.gl/forms/PVVaEISMJZWIhhqz2) and let us know your thoughts.

As a Division of the American Planning Association, APA-FIG would become 1 of 22 APA Divisions representing a community of professionals. APA Divisions have 501(c)3 status, have a seat on the Divisions Council, are governed by individual bylaws, prepare an annual work plan and budget, and have both elected and appointed leadership positions.

By becoming an official APA Division, APA-FIG could improve its visibility within the APA and increase awareness of food systems planning among the broader planning community, and have a greater connection to APA networking and professional development opportunities.
