Alan Mallach of Roosevelt was inducted into the American Institute of Certified Planners College of Fellows during a ceremony held in conjunction with the American Planning Association’s National Planning Conference in Denver. Mallach was welcomed as a Fellow of AICP on the basis of individual achievement in the field of urban and rural planning.

"As a planner, public official, advocate and scholar, Mallach has been a leader in fostering suburban affordable housing and regional equity, and has made significant contributions to revitalizing urban communities by fostering creative solution that recognize the central importance of people and neighborhoods in the future of America’s cities," said Daniel Lauber, president of AICP.

Election to the fellowship may be granted to planners who have been longtime members of AICP and have demonstrated excellence in professional practice, teaching and mentoring, research, community service, leadership and communication. All planners who have been certified by AICP use the letters AICP after their name. Fellows, however, are designated with the letters FAICP. Currently, more than 12,000 practicing urban and rural planners in North American and elsewhere have AICP certification, but of those, fewer than 260 have attained the status of Fellow.
