TAAHP WELCOMES NEW POLICY DIRECTOR
Tanya Lavelle joins TAAHP as Policy Director, a new position in the organization. Tanya will be responsible for tracking TDHCA rules, especially the development of the QAP. She will advocate for TAAHP’s positions and industry issues at the Capitol and among related organizations. TAAHP’s policies come from its members so Tanya will work closely with our organization’s committees and the Board to translate their directives into policy positions worthy of confidence.
Tanya comes to TAAHP from Easter Seals Central Texas where she served as Senior Manager of Advocacy, working on issues including affordable housing.
Although she is a native Texan, Tanya chose George Washington University in Washington, DC for her undergraduate education. She returned to Austin to attend the LBJ School of Public Affairs where she received her Master’s Degree in Public Affairs with special expertise in health and social issues. She and her husband Brian relax by making music in an Austin-based brass band.
We thank the TAAHP Board for allocating the resources necessary to establish this important position. Please plan to meet Tanya at the Texas Housing Conference. http://www.taahp.org/event/texas-housing-conference-2016/?instance_id=262
