Strategic Plan

The Oklahoma Chapter of the American Planning Association (OKAPA) began its strategic planning process in the summer of 2011 with a grant from the American Planning Association (APA) Chapter Presidents Council. Adopted in 2012, this four year plan focuses on goals in four main areas: Board Governance, Membership, Planning Education, and Partnerships & Relationships. Click here for the complete Strategic Plan.
