VAPPA members can join board meeting conference calls. Contact VP Communications for information.
Welcome to VAPPA the Virginia state chapter of APPA. VAPPA falls under the Southeastern Region of APPA (SRAPPA). We have been an official state chapter since 2016, kicked off at an annual conference hosted by James Madison University. Subsequent conferences have been held at George Mason University and Hampden-Sydney College. All have been very worthwhile learning and networking events.
VAPPA membership falls mainly into four categories: Institutional, Affiliate, Business Partner, and Associate. Institutions and Affiliates are voting members with one vote each. Associate members, by far the largest group, must be currently employed by a member. Further details, including membership registration, are available on our website: http:/vappa.appa.org.
VAPPA is your organization. We welcome any and all assistance and ideas that you may want to put forward. Stay involved and recruit nearby institutions. I have truly enjoyed this past two years on the VAPPA board, and look forward to a third as Immediate Past President. This year we will gather at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. I hope to see you there!
