Garland Comprehensive Planning Administrator Angela Self, AICP, has been appointed to serve on the Housing & Community Development Division of the American Planning Association (APA).

Within this volunteer position, Self will serve as chair of the Communications Subcommittee. Her term begins immediately and concludes at the end of 2019.

The Housing and Community Development Division is one of the member-led groups that helps provide guidance to the association to ensure it is addressing the needs of its members and the planning profession.

“APA members provide invaluable knowledge to advance the governance of the organization and help lead the planning profession,” said Mike Welch, APA’s leadership director. “These member-led groups help APA fulfill its mission of creating great communities for all.”

The American Planning Association is an independent, not-for-profit educational organization that provides vital leadership in creating great communities for all. APA and its professional institute, the American Institute of Certified Planners, are dedicated to advancing the profession of planning, offering better choices for where and how people work and live. The 42,000 APA members work in concert with community residents, civic leaders and business interests to create communities that enrich people's lives.
