APA names AICP Fellows for 2020

From APA, March 25, 2020

APA is “looking into ways to celebrate the 2020 College of Fellows inductees in lieu of the FAICP induction ceremony and reception” that was to have been held at NPC20.

“Even with the current state of uncertainty in our lives and our profession, we would be remiss not to celebrate the career achievements of 53 AICP-certified members who were inducted into the College of Fellows as the Class of 2020. Please join us in celebrating these individuals who demonstrate excellence in professional practice, teaching and mentoring, research, and community service and leadership.”

One member from APA Northern Section was inducted with this year’s class: David C. Early, FAICP. Early founded Design, Community & Environment in Berkeley in 1995. The consulting firm later merged with PlaceWorks, where he is now Senior Advisor.

Early is the author of “The General Plan in California,” Solano Press Books, 2015.

The body of his work, in its excellence and clarity, has done much to help the public understand planning, its purpose, and its value, from evaluating current conditions, to setting goals, to implementing action programs.
