3. Brainstorming Session:
- How has VAPA changed since its establishment in 1989?
- What is VAPA “About”? Has it changed from what is currently stated on its website?
- Has the “Purposes and Goals” changed for VAPA or does it remain as it is stated on its website? Are the “Goals” still realistic? See attachment 2.
- Some associations have a Mission Statement. Does VAPA need one?
Should the VAPA Bylaws, dated 9/22/2007, be reviewed and updated by the delegates?
