A Message from the President
Dear PAPPC Members:
It is a true pleasure and privilege to once again serve as President of our Association. With our 100th Annual Training Institute right around the corner, we have our work cut out for us to provide you with the highest quality training in best practices and current trends, while celebrating our rich history and ever-changing legacy. We hope to make this Training Institute the best yet! Many plans are in the works to celebrate this milestone, so stay tuned to PAPPC.org for details on plenary sessions, workshops, and special events.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our outgoing President, Michael Carrington. Michael had to cut his presidency short due to other obligations, which we all wish him the best in. Michael was able to organize and present a Training Institute that was second to none, and broadened attendance and participation from agencies that hadn’t participated in some time. He significantly increased the vision and visibility of the Association in his short tenure, and his input will be sorely missed.
Along those lines, I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank the Executive Board and Ad Hoc Committee chairs, both past and present, for their hard work and dedication, without which PAPPC could not survive. Being a volunteer organization, many have given of their time and effort to make the Association what it is today.
As a reminder, we are always looking for active members that could give a little of their time to one of the oldest associations of its kind in Pennsylvania. If you are interested, please reach out to me, or one of our Executive Committee Members. We welcome fresh input and ideas!
I would like to thank each of you for the opportunity to serve you and I look forward to watching PAPPC become a greater voice for what we represent. Here’s to 100 years, and looking towards 100 more!!!
Very Truly Yours,
Dennis C. Hoerner
