Emerging Planning Leaders Present Lattes and Leadership Weeks

LatLattes.jpgtes and Leadership is a free opportunity to meet the state's best and brightest planners in a casual setting. Don't expect a pre-set agenda, presentation or speech; at a Lattes and Leadership, you will be part of a round table discussion in a relaxed environment.

The Texas Emerging Planning Leaders (TxEPL) Committee was created by the APA Texas Chapter in 2014 to prepare future planning leaders by interacting with and learning from more experienced planners.
