President’s Message

Spring/Summer 2018

Hello to my fellow NAPCH members,

As winter draws to a close NAPCH continues to move forward. We just recently added a Pay-Pal feature for you to now pay your dues with a credit/debit card. This feature should simplify the membership/dues procedure for you. We will continue to accept checks for payment sent to the NAPCH office. When the registration for Alpena 2018 opens June 1st we will also activate Pay-Pal to accept payments also.

Your Executive Board just had the Spring meeting and allot of items were discussed. The Executive Board agreed to add some areas of testing for the membership in regards to certifications. None of the tests were changed but other 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. I will be sending an email to the Trainers when the date gets closer.

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. The fee of $400.00 will remain the same and registration will open June 1st 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 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)
