Update from the Business Office

Brittany Morstatter, FASS Executive Assistant and Event Coordinator

ARPAS is now on social media—“Like” and “Follow” ARPAS on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram. If you are interested in providing social media content relevant to ARPAS, please contact BrittanyM@assochq.org.

First, thank you to ARPAS members for showing such patience during the transition to the new membership database last August, and the subsequent changes to the renewal and CEU processes.

Starting in January, regularly scheduled “CEU balance” emails began to be distributed to members via email. Lists of upcoming meetings and approved webinar and on-demand content have been included in each of those emails. In light of the global pandemic, members should expect to see much more virtual content to be available for fulfilling CEUs.

Executive VP Report

Kenneth R. Cummings, Dipl. ACAN

Relative to maturity, ARPAS is in middle-age but still in good health.  We continuing to add new members and address new ways to add value for our member and our profession.  Ten years ago, our testing process used only paper exams.  Our work consisted of evaluating educational programs for CEU credit, working on a strategic plan and assisting the National Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) to train ARPAS members for on-farm feed management evaluation.  ARPAS had five active Chapters but the bulk of our ARPAS members had no regional chapter affiliation and could not participate ARPAS associated activities.
