Al Kertz, PhD, PAS, Dipl. ACAN

ARPAS faces some critical and timely issues, and we are addressing them. These issues are the journal, sponsorship, and membership.

Executive Vice President’s Report

Kenneth Cummings, PhD, PAS, Dipl. ACAN

This report provides a brief accounting of my activities on behalf of ARPAS since our meeting with ADSA in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 2018. Without a doubt, this past 12-month period has seen the most events, conference calls, emails, meetings, and other activities in the 35-year existence of ARPAS.

I want to acknowledge and thank our 2018–2019 president, Andy Cole, for the many hours that he devoted to activities and decisions required to manage this organization. He skillfully handled two major issues of lasting importance to ARPAS by appointing and leading two committees, one to address development of a “Value Proposition” for ARPAS members and the other for continuing publication of our newly renamed journal. Details on the actions of these committees will be covered in this report. In addition, he represented ARPAS at the ASAS meeting in Vancouver, BC, and the California Chapter meeting at Harris Ranch.
