    APA and/or AICP?

    Does anyone know if I can separate my APA membership from my AICP membership?

    These are personal reasons but I do not love the direction of the APA on a national (and local as well) basis. I think it has become too agenda driven, too environmental, too anti-suburban, too anti-business and economic development.

    I just don't see the value anymore.

    I am not really interested in debating that today but was wondering how to keep AICP and leave APA?

    Any help?

    But AICP is not like an entitlement, I have earned that. I am going to send an email to the source on this. I will report back.

    Many of us support APA directions on these pionts. A large organization like APA will never be able to make everybody happy but over all, like it or not, they are the planners voice.

    I can hear it now " their not my voice!" then jion the other planners organization.... or get involved to change the direction.

    Obviously a Clemson trained planner.

    I too have stopped paying APA dues, but then again I'm not AICP. Good luck and let us know what happens.
