Hudson Valley West Section


The Hudson Valley West Section covers Orange, Rockland, Sullivan and Ulster Counties. We are working to create a local planning network and bridge to NY Metro for Hudson Valley West regional issues. The following are goals for Hudson Valley West section development:

  • Provide timely and topical state of the art information on Chapter affairs, APA initiatives and interests, and on developments in planning
  • Enable a professional and social network of area planners and serve as a resource to them
  • Promote planning connections and awareness
  • Identify issues of local and regional interest, aiding education, dialogue and advocacy
  • Liaison with adjacent subsections and chapters, and the numerous Chapter committees
  • Position the Chapter and Section as the resource for planning in the region

Outreach to members, to fulfill Section goals, includes offering continuing education and support. A variety of sessions and gatherings are contemplated throughout the year. Please contact Section Director, Heather Jacksy, AICP, if you are interested in volunteering, or if you have other needs or concerns. Together we can provide for communities of lasting value and ensure that membership matters.
