More than one-third of you have already expressed your interest in this new, deeper IPPA experience by signing up for the Division(s) of your choice. (If you have not yet updated your division membership preferences, you may do so here.) With more than 150 members per division, and in some cases nearly twice that many, we are off to a strong start.
As you will have seen in our announcement earlier this month, elections are currently underway for a Division President, Division President-Elect, and Division Secretary in each of the six divisions. We will continue to update you on our progress during each stage of the elections, both by email and on our division officers homepage on the website. Please take an active part in the elections process, either by running for office, nominating a respected colleague, or carefully reviewing the final candidates and casting your vote when the time comes. These new leaders will work closely with you, our association and division members, and our existing leadership team to create new programming that will advance the mission of IPPA in each of these domains.
We hope you are as excited as we are as we embark on this new era in our association's journey. If you have any questions, ideas, or comments along the way, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at anytime.
In the meantime, please enjoy this newsletter, and we hope to see you in Los Angeles next summer for the 3rd World Congress.
