About us

About the Artarmon Progress Association

The APA is a not-for-profit community group, and our objectives are to promote the welfare, physical and intellectual advancement of the suburb of Artarmon and the City of Willoughby, to protect the interests of the residents and to encourage a keener spirit of citizenship and mutual help amongst residents.

Our executive committee and general members are Artarmon locals who work on a voluntary basis to help achieve great outcomes for the community. We are not-for-profit, non-political, and non-sectarian.
