APPA’s Communications Strategy group serves as the steward for the integrity, growth, and dissemination of the association’s collective body of knowledge.

The group focuses on leveraging web-based content, social media platforms, and other related informational materials and tools for the advancement of APPA’s goal of cultivating community, enhancing networking, and delivering continuous learning opportunities.
