Organizational Membership

The Organizational Membership type was created by the APA-WI Board a few years ago to allow folks who volunteer in government - Plan Commission, Board of Adjustment, elected or appointed officials such as Supervisors, Trustees, Alderpersons, school board members, etc. to join en masse at one rate (currently $50.00) per municipality with the goals of, but not limited to:

  • promoting planning
  • disseminating planning information
  • obtaining planning resources
  • exchange of contact information
  • skill building
  • networking/involvement in APA-WI

Note: the Organizational Membership is a nonvoting membership type

The Organizational Membership type is not for professional planners. All those who are, or consider themselves, professional planners must apply for a Regular Membership and enjoy all of the benefits, rights and privileges that are associated with that membership type (see the APA-WI website for more information on the Regular Membership), as well as support the mission of APA-WI; or one may apply for Chapter only membership.

APA-WI accepts this type of membership and annual renewals via mail at the current $50.00 rate. Membership and renewals are on a January 1-January 1 calendar basis no matter what time of year you apply so you are encouraged to apply as soon after January 1 of each calendar year as possible to benefit from your annual membership

Please complete the short application form, Organizational Membership Form (Exhibit A attached to the end of the Membership Plan), and email the roster of members in an Excel spreadsheet to Sandy Scherer ( and cc Nancy Frank (
