Policy and Advocacy
APA Iowa works to provide its membership with news about planning-related policy and legislation at both the state and federal level, and also to influence policy and legislation whenever possible. Each year the chapter adopts a state legislative agenda and weighs in on planning-related legislation. APA Iowa also works with APA's Policy and Advocacy team to stay informed on legislative efforts at the national level.
State Legislative Agenda
APA Iowa annually develops a state legislative agenda. The agenda is not an exhaustive list of critical planning policies important to the chapter, but rather reflects items anticipated to be considered during the session.
