The 2019-2020 APA Missouri Board of Directors take office on January 1, 2019.

The Board includes a combination of officers who were elected via a statewide election and members who were elected/appointed by the Sections (Kansas City, Ozark Mountain, or St. Louis).  The Chapter board works with Section leadership to serve the needs of APA Missouri members and to promote solid planning throughout the State of Missouri.  If you have ideas or concerns you would like to share with the Chapter or Section board, please email info at
