TAPA History

Tennessee Chapter Formation

The American Planning Associations (APA) was formed in 1978 through a merger of the American Institute of Planners (AIP) and the American Society of Planning Officials (ASPO). The existing Tennessee chapter of the AIP, with John Preston serving as president, became the first chapter of the Tennessee chapter of the APA in 1979.
