Message from the Chair

It was with sadness that we inform our Promised Lands Section membership that our annual Holiday Party will not be held this year. We are taking this approach out of an abundance of caution. Many of our members are already challenged with remote work schedules and juggling family obligations. Unfortunately, COVID continues to challenge our normalcy and push us to change the way we interact. We are hopeful that in the coming year we can host a virtual networking event if in-person options continue to be unavailable.

In the spirit of giving during this holiday season, we are asking that our members support our Section’s efforts to collect teddy bears on behalf of the Florida Highway Patrol. The FHP provides teddy bears to children at the scene of automobile accidents to help soften what is often a devastating circumstance. We do so in honor of all those who have lost someone or been lost to a tragic accident.

FHP Teddy Bear Steps:

Purchase and mail at least one teddy bear no later than December 18th.
Mail the teddy bear to: 
Josh's Warehouse
3200 Hanson Street
Fort Myers, FL 33916

Include your name so the Promised Lands Section can enter you into a raffle for a free annual conference registration next year. One raffle entry PER teddy bear donated.

We are updating our bylaws. Most of the changes are cleanup but includes a change to the timing of the election cycle for when our local Executive Committee begins and ends. The change aligns with APA FL calendar and schedule. Please REVIEW HERE and VOTE HERE.
