Message from APA-NYM President (07/26/2017)

Chapter members and friends,

The month of August presents us with an opportunity to take advantage of the remaining weeks in summer while also gearing up for the fall. Whether you have any travel plans or you will be staying local, I hope you have the chance to enjoy all that summer offers so you can feel recharged and enthusiastic about the months ahead. One way to get reinvigorated is to think about what inspires you in our profession.

Do you have a colleague who consistently stands out for his/her creativity or contributions in our industry? Is there a local organization whose mission and initiatives highlight the value of leadership in our profession? Is there a particular project in our region that warrants recognition for its notable achievements?

If so, I encourage you to consider submitting one or more nominations for our Chapter’s annual awards. As one of the hallmarks of our Chapter, the annual awards enable us to celebrate and honor a wide range of local projects and accomplishments by individuals and organizations in the region. Nominations are due by August 25th, so don’t miss your opportunity to share what inspires you with the rest of the Chapter.
