ARPAS Sponsorship

If you are going to only read one report in this newsletter, read Kenneth Cummings’ EVP report, as it is the most comprehensive, yet concise.

More specifically, I want to announce the new ARPAS Sponsorship program. In the past, there has been considerable corporate ARPAS sponsorship. But that has dwindled more recently due to a variety of circumstances. And it became a bit unwieldy with 3 levels of sponsorship. Thus, we decided to simplify and broaden the number of sponsorships.

Executive Vice President’s Report

Kenneth Cummings, PhD, PAS, Dipl. ACAN

Another decade for ARPAS has been completed and it is time to measure our accomplishments and admit to our shortcomings over that period of our 35-year history. I have been the Executive Vice-President for this entire decade so I will accept my share of accolades for the successes, as well as the penalties for the failures. In my University teaching days, letter grades were used to measure an individual’s performance, so I think it is only fair to ask each of you to “grade” ARPAS, and also me, as to how well we met your needs and expectations.
