APHA will be hosting the final leadership conference for 2017 at APHA Headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas. This will be a face-to-face day of food, fun and learning.
Beginning the day on Friday we’ll hear from Dr. Rick Rigsby with his never heard before presentation on “Accountability“.  As some of you may know Dr. Rigsby is intelligent, funny and brings power to his presentations.  You won’t want to miss this enlightening account of “sustaining accountability through momentum” he will present.
The second half of the day will be spent with APHA staff members. Each department of APHA will be represented. You’ll hear from staff on APHA programs, procedures and departmental flow. You’ll be able to visit the APHA departments and ask questions. We hope everyone will attend and take back valuable information to your area as a Leader for APHA.
