A Message from the President
Dear members and friends,
I hope that this message finds you all well. We have been through some trying times since the beginning of 2020, and hopefully we are getting closer to being back to “business as usual”. After postponing our 100th Annual Training Institute in both 2020 and 2021, we have rescheduled the Training Institute for May 22nd through 25th, 2022, at the Downtown Harrisburg Hilton. We hope that you are able to join us to celebrate an amazing milestone! Our theme for the Training Institute is “Our Centennial: Honoring the Past, Treasuring the Present, and Shaping the Future – A Celebration of Us!”. We hope to pay tribute to those who have served in the fields of probation, parole, and corrections, both adult and juvenile, past and present, and strive to improve the field for those that will come after us, and those who are engaged in the system. We also hope to celebrate our rich history, and those who have served as officers for PAPPC over the years. Our President Designate Eileen Hager has been putting together events and speakers that are sure to be informative and entertaining!
As was the case last year, we have postponed the election of officers in order to maintain continuity in conference and training planning, as well as to provide a fair election. We intend to move forward with our usual election in May of 2022. If you, or anyone you know is interested in participating as an officer or committee chair/member, please feel to reach out to us. We are always looking for fresh ideas and input!
We are in the process of exploring regional trainings for early next year, so please stay tuned for further information. Additionally, we will be back to awarding our annual scholarship, as well as honoring worthy recipients of our annual professional awards. Please check back at PAPPC.org and nominate someone that you feel is a worthy recipient!
Due to circumstances beyond our control, we will be changing our mailing address. Please watch for our new P.O. Box address in the near future. We sincerely apologize to anyone who has experienced inconvenience or difficulty due to this when attempting to correspond through the mail.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our executive board for their work and patience through these difficult times. We have maintained all offices throughout this period of down time, with everyone staying on board. We are all eager to get back to work to provide you with the training and services that you are used to seeing from PAPPC.
On behalf of the Executive Board, we wish you all good health, and hope to see you in Harrisburg in May!
