2016 Awards

The purpose of the Orange Section awards program is to encourage quality in planning and to increase the public’s awareness of the planning profession by recognizing local achievements in our field.

2016 Orange Section Awards 

On May 25, 2016, Orange Section APA hosted the 2016 Awards Ceremony at Magdalena Plaza in San Juan Capistrano. The event was filled with award winning leaders and projects from throughout Orange County. We also celebrated the award of scholarships from the Bob Goldin Memorial Scholarship Fund to ten students and the success of five AICP recipients.

The awards are held to celebrate these wonderful accomplishments in planning. It is important to share these projects with others in our community and ultimately share them throughout the State of California.

Thanks to our sponsors who have generously supported the awards, Orange Section was able to provide an outstanding event. And with the generous donations for our silent auction, we were able to raise $3,500 which will go toward future scholarships.

Your Board of Directors works hard to prepare the awards ceremony and to provide our members with resources and training for professional planners. Special thanks to Amy Vazquez and Ashley Heffner, the Awards Co-Chairs, and to House of Sunshine for the succulent arrangements at the ceremony. We encourage everyone to get involved with APA. Contact us if you would like to participate.
