2018 APHA Convention Location and Date Announced

Mark your calendars for the 2018 APHA Convention and Membership meeting held March 2-5, 2018 at the DFW Marriott North, Irving, Texas.  Watch your LeaderCare newsletter for more information.

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 to 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 with a different measurement tool at the 2018 Convention.
