She was appointed as the new trustee to TMCA, the leading organization of city secretaries, in an announcement issued during the association's annual business meeting in Frisco, Texas.

As a new trustee, Roan will be responsible for the guidance and accomplishment of the goals of the association, which include operation of the Texas Municipal Clerks Certification Program, the most important professional development course for city secretaries across the nation. With 28 years of municipal experience, Roan has the TMCCP's Texas Registered Municipal Clerk certification and the International Institute of Municipal Clerks' Certified Municipal Clerk designation.

Roan co-authored the Texas Municipal Clerks Handbook, a reference manual published by the TMCA that serves as a guide to those in the profession of city secretary. With extensive involvement on various committees at TMCA, in 2016, Roan was honored as the Municipal Clerk of the Year.
