MINUTES OF THE 2014 TOWN MEETING
AAPC TOWN MEETING LUNCHEON
Minutes April 4,2014
- The meeting was called to order by President Alice M. Graham.
- The Minutes of the 2012 Town Meeting were approved.
- Certification Chair, Ron McDonald, presented new Diplomate, Patricia Hedegard with her Diplomate Certificate.
- President Elect Pamela Holliman reported on the strategic planning for the future of the Association. Over the past eight months the Association has undertaken a consultative process to plan a Sustainability and Strategic Alliance Initiative. Many of you contributed comments and ideas in response to a survey you received in November. Prior to the Association meeting, the Board and Regional Chairs gathered for a planning meeting facilitated by our consultant, Jess Jamieson. Several important themes emerged for action: building strategic partnerships locally for members and more broadly for the Association. This will increase visibility, enhance awareness with the intention of enhancing mission and "business." Maintaining and increasing membership is another important aspect. To this end AAPC is contracting with The Hatcher Group (www.thehatchergroup.com) to develop a Communications and Message Development Plan. These are two examples of how the Association will utilize its resources to position members in their communities to be responsive to emerging health care and counseling needs. Additionally, it will highlight the "resources" AAPC members bring to the development of models of care and community health partnerships.
