A letter from the President

 First and foremost, I would like to thank the association for allowing me to serve as President and be part of an organization that not only gives knowledge back but allows friendships to be created within the field. This organization has meant so much to me over the past 7 years. The Upstate Chapter of the APA has provided the resources to assist me and many others to grow professionally and personally. Those of you who have been members for a while know this to be true, and those who are new to the chapter will soon find out. This chapter has always been focused on helping its members grow and be relevant in their careers. Even though we are all from different industries, we have a common goal; that is to see each other succeed.

As I take on this new role, I welcome the other members of our team for the 2019-2020 term:

· Meg Hudak, President Elect

· Teresa Contois, Secretary

· Marlon Baese, Treasurer

· Marc Dominick, Membership Chair

· Denise Salopek, Education Chair

   Sherry Johnson, Director at Large

Our team, along with the help of our Directors at Large, are committed to providing professional growth opportunities, networking and educational growth to our members.

During the coming weeks, we will provide information about upcoming changes and future events. The next 2 years will be challenging as well as rewarding, as we strive to increase our membership and grow our chapter. 

Several opportunities will be available throughout the year to meet for certification/education (RCH’s) as well as networking with individuals within our field. I want to re-assure you that the intention of this board is to grow the Upstate Chapter. We will stay focused on remaining a benefit to our members. I have no doubt that with our network of highly-engaged members & speakers we will have a successful 2 years and beyond. I’m excited and look forward to a productive and successful tenure and invite each of you to participate and, most importantly, become involved.

As I look forward with enthusiasm, I would like to thank our outgoing President, Marlon Baese, for his service to the chapter.
