Planning Student Organizations (PSO's)

Each APA-registered Planning Student Organization (PSO) elects a Student Representative to represent their fellow students on the Student Representatives Council (SRC) and act as a liaison with its Executive Committee and APA. PSO Student Representatives are elected by each school on an ongoing basis.

You must register your PSO Student Representative with APA each academic year so APA knows who is representing your school on the SRC.  Register here.
