In the Community
Welcome to OAPA's In the Community Page OAPA's Mission Statement: Relevant Resources, Better Planners, Exceptional Communities.
OAPA recognizes and promotes exceptional planners and the neighborhoods and communities they work in. Each year, OAPA recognizes the best of Oregon's planners through the Chapter Awards program.
The Chapter also encourages members to give back through volunteer opportunities such as the Community Assistance Planning Program.
More information on both these programs can be found through the links on the left. To read more about OAPA's mission and strategic plan, please visit our Strategic Plan & Guiding Principles Plan page.
OAPA provides resources and a structure that enables volunteer leaders and staff to accomplish the organization’s goals and support the needs of its members. OAPA works to ensure that the organization is relevant, efficient, and effective and provides a variety of networking and volunteer opportunities for members.
