The APA-IL is the Illinois State Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA). Within APA-IL, there are two separate sections: the Chicago Metro Section (covering the nine-county Chicago Metropolitan Region) and the Illinois State Section (covering the remainder of the State). The Chicago Metro Section and the Illinois State Section have an executive committee that sends delegates to the APA-IL Board. The APA-IL Board is led by a Chapter President with 13 voting members and 10 ex-officio members. The SPO Vice President/APA Representative of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is a voting member of this board.
