Oregon Chapter of the American Planning Association Welcome to the New OAPA Website!
We are pleased to welcome you to the new OAPA website - oregon.planning.org which replaces our previous home at oregonapa.org. For those of you who have used the American Planning Association (planning.org) website, many of the features on this site will look very familiar. Of note, members may login and get direct access to your APA membership page via the links at the upper right of this page. The connection with the main APA website should also make it easier to log AICP credits for OAPA events and to find and connect with other members.
Have a look around and let us know what you think. Questions? Concerns? Website issues? Please email Communications Committee Chair Josh Williams.
And if you are not yet a member, please consider joining planners from across the state and get involved in OAPA. More info at the link below.
