Announcement from the RAPA Chair, Jill Dupuis

Hi All,

As the new Chair of RAPA, I’m reaching out to everyone with some updates that have occurred and a call to action. For all those who attended the in-person conference in Florida last October, thank you for your participation! It was wonderful to see everyone in person, to reconnect with old friends and to meet new members. We received excellent feedback on the annual conference, with most people rating networking as their most valued thing about the conference, due to not seeing each other during the pandemic. We have reviewed your suggestions to make 2023 even better and are working towards that.

For those of you who didn’t attend in 2022, we hope to see you in Nashville on October 15-17, 2023! Mark your calendars now! RAPA has some great things planned for 2023. We’re working on a virtual conference for the spring and have already secured some speakers and topics for the annual in person conference.

Below are you new Board and initiative leads. I’m appealing to all those interested to please connect with the initiative leads below if you want to get involved. The initiatives are the heart and soul of RAPA. The time commitment is small, but the benefits are immeasurable. Initiatives offer a great opportunity to connect with others across the industry to share ideas, to drive best practices to enhance your skillset and to make meaningful change in the industry we are all so passionate about.
