A Message from the APA President
Hello APA members,

Happy New Year! I sincerely hope all of you had wonderful winter holidays. I love the holiday season. At least for a few weeks, everyone seems to be nicer to each other. If only we could manage to keep this going all year long, not just around the holidays. Additionally, things slow down at work for a brief period of time in December. Finally, less than 100 emails per day!  I know the holidays are over. It is easy for depression to set in. Months of winter weather are ahead for most of us. In addition, as I write this letter, the federal government is partially shut down. There is worrisome news from our southern border almost daily. Please don’t despair. It is a new year!  Full of opportunity and hope. At least at the APA, there is plenty to look forward to.
