President’s Panel: Apra Leaders Reflect on the Past and Plan for the Future
Recorded On: 07/29/2021
Apra ended 2019 as an organization smack in the middle of a three-year strategic plan, with the ambitious goal to shift Apra from being a strong, steady, reliable sedan to a rocket ship driving additional value for members and positively impacting the industry. Then came 2020, with all it’s challenges, and Apra leaders were forced, like all of us, to adapt and persevere. Join Apra’s current, past, and future president in a lively and candid conversation about the opportunities ahead for Apra and our industry.
