NCAPA Chapter Update

I want to provide an update to our current database on the status of our Chapter. 

We are officially in “good standing” with APA as our request for re-affiliation was approved (in August).   

As most of you probably know APA implemented new rules last year requiring chapters to re-affiliate annually and this year the rules became stricter but again we were approved.

Bottom line – APA wants to change the image of Local Chapter meetings and make them more formal very similar to attending a SHRM meetings.

We have enjoyed a very strong membership since the Chapter was chartered in 1987 until the past couple of years – as of now we have 53 members which is roughly a third of average membership.  

If you did not receive an separate email from my work email account, your membership has expired.

I am organizing a “planning meeting” for one evening next week to discuss next steps in getting our chapter active again.  If you are an active member and are willing to attend planning meeting just let me know. (You can renew dues online or bring check to planning meeting).

I will send you the new Local Chapter Guide to read, and our current By-Laws.  I would ask that you read these documents prior to meeting so we are ready to brainstorm.

We will choose a restaurant in the Brier Creek area since that is between Raleigh and Durham, and probably start meeting between 5:30 or 6pm.

Thanks!

Kim
