Chapter Governance

Nothing to report

 

Chapter Events

Board of Directors meetings are scheduled at the Summer and Winter NYAPPA/SUNY PPAA conferences, Fall ERAPPA conference, and other times (Spring for example) as schedules permit.  In 2018, the Spring meeting was held along with a two-day drive-in series.  Our meetings are used to plan and conduct organizational business to continue to grow and engage the chapter.

Fall meeting to be held on October 1, 2018 at the ERAPPA conference in Manchester, NH.
