President's Message

Happy New Year SRAPPA!
Fresh off the heels of the SRAPPA 2021 Conference in Mobile, AL, I think it is safe to say that our region is as energetic and enthusiastic about professional development, networking, and continuing education as we ever have been!  It was so great to be able to have our members back together alongside our fantastic business partners to share and learn, and we are hopeful that 2022 provides many more opportunities to gather together!
Our spring season is a busy one, with seven of our state chapters hosting their annual conferences between February and May.  I would encourage you to seek out opportunities to engage with your state chapters – specifically at the annual conferences, as these are wonderful opportunities for learning and networking.
Professional Development has always been a focus to SRAPPA, and this year we will continue that tradition with a number of professional development opportunities available ranging from Supervisors Toolkit, APPA’s Virtual Leadership Academy on Campus, the Virtual Pathway to Professionalism (P2P), and CEFP credentialing! SRAPPA offers scholarships for these, so please visit the website or reach out to our VP of Education, Andy Maddox for more information.
I hope your 2022 is off to a fantastic start, and that I will have the opportunity to connect with you at some point during this year!

All the Best,
Dan Whatley
