Passing of the Torch

At the final Board of Directors meeting for the APMP-NCA Chapter, we welcomed the new Board and said farewell to the outgoing Board Members, including President Lisa Pafe. Lisa served on the Board for six years and was active for several years even before serving on the Board.  The NCA Chapter appreciates all she has done and wishes her well as she moves forward.  Of course, we do plan to keep her around in some capacity!!

Beginning in January, look for introductions and profiles of new Board members.
