The American Planning Association Massachusetts Chapter (APA-MA) is an official Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA). We are a 1,000-plus member organization of professional planners and planning officials who serve Massachusetts communities in many ways, at all levels of government, the private sector and not-for-profit organizations.

Our Mission

The Chapter provides leadership in the development of vital communities by advocating for excellence in community planning, promoting education and citizen empowerment, and providing the tools and support necessary to meet the challenges of growth and change. We achieve our mission by:

  • Promoting the public good through the application of planning for better decision making;
  • Helping meet human needs in a manner that enhances the quality and distribution of resources in the physical, social and economic environment; and
  • Advocating for open, informed and inclusive public decision making processes to reach rational decisions.

The Chapter exists to collaborate with, bring together and support the many people and groups in Massachusetts involved in the local, state and regional and national planning process and to promote and achieve planning that is better performed, better understood, and better respected.
