Welcome to the new FAPPO year!!!! I am honored and excited to serve as FAPPO's 2016/2017 President. It’s going to be a very exciting year of educational and networking opportunities! We are already hard at work planning a great FALL Workshop in Sarasota scheduled for November 4, 2016. Details will be coming soon! Plans for the 2017 50th Annual FAPPO Conference and Trade Show, “Personal and Professional Excellence”, are underway with some exciting keynote speakers. It takes an enormous amount of work all year long, to put together the Fall Workshop and the Annual Conference. None of it would be possible without all of the volunteers that give their time to assist in the planning. I want to thank all those who have volunteered to be on committees for our 2016-2017 FAPPO year. Your hard work and dedication are a testament to what this organization is all about. If you haven’t already done so, it’s time to renew your membership. You can process your payment via credit card directly through our website or you have the ability to download and print the membership form if you are paying via check. If you have any questions or comments, please contact any one of the officers! I look forward to seeing you at either the Fall Workshop or Annual Conference, or both!!

Greetings FAPPO Family, Can you believe it? Our 50th Anniversary Conference and Trade Show is just 3 days away, and our Special Event is just 2 days away. A lot of hard work and planning have been invested in the preparation for this very special event. I want to say thank you to all of our volunteers who have worked on putting this event together over the past year, and to those who have volunteered to work at the conference. I also want to say thank you to all of our registered delegates attending this year’s conference. We are so glad that you could join us for this year’s conference. I know that you are going to enjoy yourself while networking with our peers and learning from each other in our general sessions and workshops that we have planned. Please join me in thanking our Sponsors and Exhibitors at this year’s Trade Show as we have lunch with them and tour this year’s trade show on Thursday. The special edition, 50th Anniversary Conference Newsletter can be found under “What’s New” on the FAPPO website. Thank you again and I’ll see you soon, Diane Wetherington, FAPPO President, 2016 - 2017
