Planning Student Organizations

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 we know who is representing your school on the SRC.

Why Register a PSO with APA?

  1. Your student rep will automatically join the Student Representatives Council and have a voice in student governance. He/she will get up-to-date information about APA programming and events for students and share feedback directly to APA.
  2. Your PSO will be eligible to compete for awards and competitions.

Registering Your PSO Each Academic Year

PSOs must register with APA each academic year. Each PSO must have a Student Representative (who must be an APA Student Member) and a Faculty Adviser. Terms last September thru the following August.
