APA Chapters

APA began as a Texas organization that included members from outside the state and has evolved into a national organization with designated chapters in other states and regions. 

Consider joining a chapter for continuing education and high quality, in depth, and interactive training seminars in your region, covering a variety of topics on accessibility, based upon expressed interests from local building officials, design professionals, contractors, owners, and developers near you. 

Joining a Chapter is your way to get involved with topics that are specific to your area and network with professionals in your region.

If you are interested in starting an APA chapter in your state or region, please contact Camille North.
