AAPA is committed to providing a source of professional support and community for our members. In the summer of 2020, we developed a three-part webinar series to help members adjust to the pandemic's impact on our professional lives. We recognize that the impact of COVID-19 has been disproportionately felt across our membership and will be looking into ways to expand this webinar series to address more of those professional needs.
