Organizational membership

APA - Wisconsin has established a $50 organizational membership.  When your organization becomes an organizational member, all of the non-planning staff members that you designate are added to our communication distribution lists.  Help keep everyone in your office or local unit of government apprised of current legal issues, professional development opportunities, news in Wisconsin planning, and more.  Organizational members are non-voting; all regular and student members employed in the organization continue to enjoy their respective membership rights and benefits.
