When: July 18, 
Topic: APHA Disciplinary Process / Rule Change Proposals
During this conference we’ll travel through the process of how and when to craft a rule change proposal and give you details regarding APHA’s disciplinary process and how it works. This session will be open to all leaders of APHA.  You will be sent a link to the email address you are receiving this newsletter, the day before the video conference.  Join from a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android device.
The last two video conferences will be September 12 and November 3.  The September 12 conference topic will decided with a little help from you as to what you would like to learn more about.  The final conference will be a face-to-face on November 3, 2017 here are the APHA Headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas. Beginning the day on Friday we’ll hear from Dr. Rick Rigsby and the second half of the day will be spent with APHA staff members. Each department of APHA will be represented to outline their workflow, duties and the customer service they provide to members of APHA.

The APHA Regional Club Advisory Committee will be working on a new award program for Gold Star clubs and Clubs of Distinction.
Staff along with this committee will be proposing to the APHA Executive Committee a new awards structure that will be determined based on the growth of the club.  Previously the deadline for the awards application was June 1st, however, this year the application will not be necessary.  The RCAC is working very hard to spell out the criteria for this award with the EC’s approval and then make the announcement.  Awards are still planned for these two  accomplishments at the 2018 Convention.
