President’s Message

Summer 2018

Hello to my fellow NAPCH members,

Your Executive Board held the Spring meeting and many items were discussed. The Executive Board agreed to add areas of testing for the membership in regards to certifications. None of the tests were changed but added areas of the test may be requested by the member. Go to the training area icon and see these additions. Also, the Executive Board cleaned up the By-Laws due to word clarification. None of the sections were changed just clarification on certain items so you the membership would understand. The Executive Board also voted on reducing the Alpena registration fee for the Trainers. The Board agreed that due to these dedicated people assisting at the training sites, and giving up their training time, the fee should be reduced. Go to the Pay-Pal information and see Trainer Seminar fee.

Alpena 2018 is moving quickly with your Executive Board working on the plans. The dates for the Seminar are Saturday September 29th thru Thursday October 4th. You MUST be a NAPCH member in order to attend the Seminar. Go on the website and SUBMIT a membership application for approval. The approval will not go through until the membership fee is paid. The Seminar fee of $400.00 will remain the same and registration is open on the website.

We need ALL of you to submit that NAPCH member worthy of recognition to Mike Raby ASAP. We have simplified the process and believe there are many members that have done good deed(s).

I am once again asking all NAPCH members to keep in touch with us either on Facebook, email  or through the website. Also, please update any information that will assist us in getting in contact with you as quite a few addresses and emails are not current.

Finally, this organization is only as good as its members! Please stay involved. Host or participate in a posted Regional Seminar. If you need assistance please contact me or any other Executive Board member.  Please stay safe!!

Keep your training above a minimum standard and stay prepared!

– Terry Foley (President)
