The Hampton Roads Section is one of nine subdivisions of the APA Virginia Chapter. This section is an active group of approximately 250 professional planners who either live or work in Eastern Virginia. Our members have careers in the public sector and in private practices. Hampton Roads Section has a vast array of skillsets and specializations. This diverse collection of professionals can take advantage of the several events and networking opportunities provided by this section. Hampton Roads draws together its members to provide training, foster relationships and raise the stature of planning as a profession and practice in our localities.
