March 30-31: TexasPlans Legislative and Advocacy Summit Texas Planners Head to Austin
The APA-Texas Chapter is hosting its first ever Legislative and Advocacy Summit in conjunction with Planners' Day at the State Capitol. Topics from this Summit were selected based on feedback from the Chapter's legislative priority survey.
As planners, we must advocate for stronger communities by engaging on local, state, and federal legislative issues that affect planning. While the Texas Legislature is not currently in session, it is important for Chapter members to stay engaged and use this time to connect with legislative staff to share the stories of exemplary planning that have resulted in stronger and healthier communities. The Chapter is preparing for a strong and effective presence during the 87th Texas Legislature in 2021, and we need your help.
