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.
