Welcome back to all of our existing Member Programs and a warm hello to our newest Member Program -- The University of New Haven! The challenges of 2020 allowed AAPHP the time to strategically plan and regroup to better meet the needs of our Member Programs. I would like to thank the 2020 Board for their service and hard work in this process. In 2021, I am proud to be leading a dedicated board with fresh ideas and plans. I hope you can take the time to review the expertise of 2021 Board of Directors on our newly launched website.
Our plans this year will focus on active communications and engagement to better serve you, our valued members. We will be hosting two educational webinars this year to provide technical assistance and networking related to CEPH competencies, showcasing some of our successful member programs. In addition, we will be hosting two virtual graduate school fairs that will allow our member programs to highlight their offerings to potential students. We hope to share our excellent students among our member programs and show these recruits the value of the AAPHP Member Programs. Participation in these virtual fairs is FREE for member programs and FREE for students from any school to join. I highly encourage you to take advantage of these offerings.
If you have any ideas or news to share, please feel free to reach out to me at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to hear from you. I look forward to serving you well in 2021.
Gerold Dermid, 2021 AAPHP Board President
University of Nevada, Reno
