EDUCATION CONFERENCE NEWS
It is with a heavy heart and deep regret that I post this announcement to PAP’s website. The board has decided to postpone this year’s Education Conference in order to garner more sponsorship opportunities and increase membership support for the conference. The website will have information as it becomes available regarding a new date, etc.
