AAPA is committed to providing a source of professional support and community for our members. As a first step in adjusting to our new socially-distanced world, we developed a summer, 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.
