Chapter delegates are the lifeblood of the national policy development process; their work results in policy guides, which serve as the grounding force behind APA’s federal and state advocacy work.  
 
APA’s policy guides on Equitable Economic Development, Legacy Cities, and Zoning Reform are currently underway and will soon require review, debate, and engagement by chapter appointed delegates.  

APA Florida is allotted 9 delegates based on 2021 membership totals.
 
Given the importance of their role, delegates are encouraged to remain as actively engaged as possible throughout the entirety of their term. Delegates should be prepared to:

  • Support the policy development process in various ways, including, but not limited to participation in surveys, digital meetings, submitting formal comments, weighing in on early proposals, and voting to adopt finished policy guides.
  • Serve for one calendar year term; delegates can be reappointed in the next calendar year.
  • Engage as needed, potentially as frequently as monthly.  

APA anticipates the first delegate engagement opportunity to occur in June.  

If you are interested in serving as a delegate representing APA Florida, please contact Alex Magee at fapa@floridaplanning.org by May 15.  If you have particular expertise in one (or more) of the three policy topics identified above, please include that in your email.
