Who We Are

The Planning and the Black Community Division (PBCD) was formed in 1980 and today celebrates its 40th Anniversary.  Founding members Rodney G. Proctor and William M. Harris, Sr., Ph.D., FAICP fought to establish an advocacy division within APA to provide a national forum for planners, administrators, public officials, students and other interested individuals to address issues of significance to the Black community.  They sought to promote exchange between members and other organizations, encourage professional development among Black planners and to provide career information.
