Roundtable Membership

The California Planning Roundtable has 34 positions for permanent members, with 28 evenly divided between Northern and Southern California, and the public and private sectors. Four of the remaining positions are reserved for members from academic institutions, and two are for members from agencies of the state or federal governments.

A member who decides to leave the Roundtable after five full years of service is eligible for emeritus status, which allows attendance at Roundtable meetings and participation in projects, but does not include the ability to vote on issues before the membership. The current president of the California Chapter of the American Planning Association also sits on the Roundtable as an ex-officio member.
