On July 23, 2013, the Texas Affiliation of Affordable Housing Providers (TAAHP) honored Diana McIver with the Jean MacDonald Lifetime Achievement Award.  The award, established in 2011 to honor the late Jean MacDonald, is given each year to recognize exemplary accomplishments in the field of affordable housing.

“This is such an honor,” said Diana upon receiving the award, “Jean MacDonald is my hero! Jean was a true pioneer in our industry, successful at a time when women executives were not common in the housing industry. I’m flattered to have my name associated with such an icon.”

Diana was first elected to the TAAHP Board of Directors in 2002 and served as its President in 2005/2006. She continues to serve on the Board in an Ex Officio role.
