The WNY APA recognizes the great planning work taking place by our members through an annual Awards Program. We are the only Section in the New York Upstate APA Chapter with an awards program! Nominations are accepted during the early months of each year, and winners are honored at an Awards Dinner/Ceremony held each May. The Awards Committee is chaired by the Past Director of WNY APA who serves as a non-voting member; other committee members are volunteers.

A huge thank you to everyone that came out to the 2017 WNY APA Annual Reception at Resurgence!!! We had a about 80 people attend which was just about the same as last year! We drank and ate delicious food, networked and mingled with each other, and got to learn about and honor some of the best projects happening in the WNY region right now. We hope you enjoyed our reinvented event and welcome any feedback you have! Pictures of the event are below!
