Park, Dan
Facilities Manager, v29 n5 p11 Sep-Oct 2013
Recently, there have been many discussions regarding APPA's upcoming 100-year anniversary celebration. APPA's international and regional officers are collectively planning an extraordinary event that will take place in San Diego, California in July 2014. There is no doubt that the APPA staff will provide exceptional educational programs and opportunities to interact with business partners who are willing to share their experiences and services to help solve relevant problems, offering a consistent balance of networking and entertainment. As an active member of APPA/PCAPPA for the last 25 years, Dan Park describes how he has continued to expand his involvement based on the continued benefits of membership, including the sharing of best practices, networking, educational training sessions, and collective problem solving. Along with these advantages, members are able to develop long-lasting friendships and peer support within the industry. Just as a fellow member reached out to him at one of the first APPA regional conferences he attended, Park encourages each APPA member to reach out and welcome new members. This small gesture can make a tremendous difference to newcomers and help develop friendships that will last for years to come, thereby strengthening APPA's professional community.
