Board of Trustees

Board of Trustees

APA Ohio is governed by a Board of Trustees elected from the general membership. The Board is composed of 16 at-large members elected from the general membership and the Section Directors or their designated representatives. At least four of the at-large trustees shall not be professional planners, but individuals interested in furthering the goals and objectives of APA Ohio. A professional planner is a person whose primary occupation is the practice of planning.

The APA Ohio Bylaws were updated in 2018 to include seats for a representative from each of the Planning Accreditation Board (PAB) accredited Universities within Ohio (Cleveland State University, The Ohio State University and the University of Cincinnati).
