Many changes are transforming our profession at an accelerating pace. The APPA Board of Directors wants to make sure that it is ready to help members prepare for those changes. On August 5, the Board adopted and launched APPA’s new strategic plan. The plan provides a framework that will guide APPA as it sharpens its focus, strengthens its core, and builds organizational capacity to meet its members’ evolving needs. Please take some time to review APPA's Strategic Plan. – Don Guckert
