Alaska Professional Design Council (APDC) is
an umbrella organization that provides a
forum to coordinate and complement the efforts of its member societies,
especially in areas of public policy and education. Each of the member societies
has 2 seats on the APDC Board of Directors, which governs activities and
The APDC Board
maintains close contact with the state Board of Registration for Architects,
Engineers and Land Surveyors (AELS Board), monitors legislation in Juneau, and
works with other agencies and organizations in Alaska to weigh in on issues
affecting professional practice, when there is a unified voice among members. If
member organizations are not in agreement, APDC encourages all societies with an
interest to provide feedback directly on behalf of their members.
Alaska Designs is the primary tool
used to communicate among member organizations. It is distributed to
about 1,500 architects, engineers, land surveyors, landscape architects,
and interior designers in Alaska. Advertising is a great way to reach APDC members and support the organization. Recent issues are available through the
