our transition into the revitalized IAAP, we still have a lot to offer
new and current members. We don’t need to wait until Branches and LANs
are in place to reap the benefits of this amazing association and to
recruit new members.
the many professional benefits we have to offer is our array of
education. Over 90 percent of IAAP conference attendees receive employer
support. However, I hear many members say they can’t afford to attend
our conferences. Whenever someone says their employer won’t support
their continuing education, I inquire if they’ve even asked for their
manager’s support. Most say “no.”
Many years ago a very wise person (my grandmother) said, “don’t assume, it never hurts to ask.” Not
asking could get in the way of gaining support for your continued
education and professional development. Have you asked for your employer’s support?
