APDC Member Societies


The 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 policies.

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 top icon in the right border.

Members of Alaska Professional Design Council are the Alaska Society of Professional Engineers, Alaska Society of Professional Land Surveyors, Alaska sections of American Society of Interior Designers, American Institute of Architects, American Society of Civil Engineers, American Society of Landscape Architects, American Council of Engineering Companies, and Structural Engineers' Association of Alaska.
