APR/MAY – Miscellaneous
Here’s What Happened at the National Conference in Nashville
Thanks for your participation in leadership training
For those who were able to make the trip to Nashville, we hope you took advantage of being with the AAPCCA Board of Directors for our leadership training session. Each year this is an opportunity to get a personal visit with the 16-member board and to pick their brains as we learn together. We had a fun and informative leadership session for officers and as always enjoyed the sharing from our chapter officers the most!
We Said Goodbye to Five Members of the AAPCCA Board of Directors
Words can’t express how much we appreciate all the time donated and talents shared by these capable women, most have served since 2011. Thanks go to Donna Nugteren, Judy Wilson, Melissa Corral, and Robin Zink. They have represented their regions well. Special thanks go to Brenda Edwards who has served since 2010 and for the last year as the Chair of the AAPCCA Board of Directors. She has spent countless hours assisting the Local Chapter staff, speaking with and learning from officers who need direction, and being a great supporter of AAPC. We will miss all five of these board members (but we also know where to find them when we need them!)
We welcomed five new faces to the Board of Directors
Along with the current board, there are five new representatives assigned in the following regions:
- Region 2 Yolanda Haskins
- Region 3 Peter Davidyock
- Region 4 Kristie Stokes
- Region 6 Holly Brown
- Region 8 Linda Martien
And we have a new executive committee directing the Board of Directors
- Chair Barbara Fontaine
- Vice Chair Kathy Burke
- Secretary Candice Ruffing
- Treasurer Erin Andersen
- Meeting Coordinator Roxanne Thames

Congratulations to Spartanburg SC, the 2013 Chapter of the Year!
As her final act as president, Allison Ray Busbin was sure to let us know why her chapter should be AAPC’s 2013 chapter of the year. After describing their “exciting and phenomenal year” we could see what she was talking about. Some of their accomplishments include an abundance of educational meetings; mentoring students, members and incoming officers; recruiting; representing AAPC professionally and with positive attitudes; and ensuring that incoming officers were well trained. On top of that, Allison assured us her chapter involvement “would not cease”. Thank you, Allison, and all of your officers! The 2013 officers of the Spartanburg, South Carolina Chapter are:
President Allison Ray Busbin
Vice President Brandi Parham Downen
Secretary Melissa Stanley
Treasurer Courtney Clary
Education Officer Sheri Smith
Member Development Officer Tamela Walker
Additional officer Steven Scott Sisk
It is important to note here that many officers are going above and beyond for their members in an effort to make a positive, educational, and friendly AAPC experience on a local level. We’d like to give kudos also to the 2013 officers of the Albany New York and Dallas Texas chapters, who were right in the running for the chapter of the year.
We Apologize for the Delay
This edition of Officer News is late in coming and we appreciate your patience. It is our goal to provide timely and informative information for officers on a regular monthly basis.

With each month we’ll continue to provide a quiz on the news, earning officers .5 CEU per month. We hope you’ve been watching for the March quiz, so here it is! Click here to earn your .5 CEU for March and watch for the April/May quiz which will be worth 1.0 CEU. If at any time you have questions about any of the information, give us a call.
