    Scott Turner has taken on the position of APA Sustainable Communities Division Chair.  We wish him luck on his new endeavor (and on keeping up both with MACP and APA :).  Please see an excerpt of his message below.

    "I am excited to assume the position of Chair of the Sustainable Communities Division.  The Division’s dedicated and passionate group of members and volunteers have worked extremely hard to build it into one of the strongest Divisions within APA.  Over the past few years, the Division has experienced tremendous growth in a number of areas and has shown strong leadership in promoting sustainability both within the Division and throughout APA.  The Division is still fairly young and is in the process of further developing many of these programs and the progress so far has been remarkable. 

    I am extremely optimistic about the growth and future of our Division.  We have great people involved that have brought us this far already.  We are hopeful that more of you will join us as we continue to expand the Division and all of our initiatives.  I truly feel that the value of membership in any organization is dependent on the level of involvement of individual members.  Please feel free to contact me or any member of our executive committee if you have interest in getting more involved with the Division.  We have opportunities for involvement with any of the initiatives I have described above.

    I look forward to working with you all over the next couple of years. Please feel free to contact me directly at if you have any comments, questions, or concerns."
