Mission

The Western Central Chapter (WCC) of the American Planning Association (APA) will be an advocate for western planners in the four states of Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, and North Dakota. The Chapter will provide professional training, a quarterly newsletter, an informational website, and participate in an annual conference within our region.

WCC is committed to promoting the practice of planning, fostering social and environmental equity, advancing opportunities for citizen participation and supporting the opportunities for planners in both the private and public sector.  In particular, the WCC will focus on planning issues impacting western states and in fostering professional development opportunities concerning those issues.
