Chapter Only Membership

APA RI offers the option of joining the Chapter without having to also join national APA.

Chapter-Only Membership

A reasonably priced alternative to National APA Membership, Chapter-Only membership is open to anyone who wishes to become engaged in planning related issues, opportunities and events in Rhode Island. 

Chapter-Only Members do not benefit from National APA membership such as membership rates at National Conferences and may not participate in National APA elections, but such members may vote in Chapter elections, serve on Chapter committees, and be appointed to some Chapter offices.  Chapter-Only membership is available by filling out the chapter membership application.

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
  • Education Programs
  • Chapter Activities
  • Annual Awards
  • Networking Opportunities
  • Legislative initiatives
  • Discounted Annual Conferences
  • Chapter Website
