Mid-Atlantic Regional Council

Regional councils are where planning comes together, inspiring members to think globally, and act locally. Grown out of the need to support membership, learning, and event development, the five SCUP regions create member connections, while supporting the development of today and tomorrow’s planning leaders.

The Mid-Atlantic Regional Council represents members from Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia,  West Virginia, and Eastern Europe.

The Mid-Atlantic Regional Council’s work supports SCUP’s strategic plan adopted by the board of directors. The Council’s efforts support the following initiatives:
