Position Statement
For our profession, APA Florida has come a long way in providing the required number of credits to our members through free or low-cost means. I believe this is one of the most critical responsibilities of the VP for Certificate Maintenance, ensuring that APA Florida members can earn their required 32 CM credits as cost-effectively as possible. The keys to achieving this are (1) ensuring that Sections and our members are aware of the variety of free resources available and (2) partnering with related professional organizations on local events.

During my tenure as Chair of the Broward Section, we replicated an Ethics “Jeopardy” session that I learned about during an Executive Committee meeting. It was a great opportunity to involve local practitioners in a session that provided free ethics credits to our AICP-certified planners.

As APA Florida members, we are very fortunate to belong to one of the most active state chapters in the U.S., one that hosts an unparalleled annual state conference. As the VP for Certificate Maintenance, it will be my responsibility to ensure that these conferences continue to offer CM credits.

Planning is about collaboration, and, ultimately, the role of every member of the APA Florida Executive Committee is to assist the Sections in fulfilling the needs of their members while keeping the State Chapter in good standing with national APA. This position, for me, is about living up to my commitment as an AICP planner to contribute to the development of the profession and my colleagues.
