APPA strongly supports the role young professionals (generally 36 years of age and younger) play in the success of member businesses, the future of the profession and the Association.
In 2020, APPA established the YPromo Committee, tasked to connect young professionals and tap into valuable resources that will help them succeed in their careers and business. The YPromo Committee is working on a number of activities linked to its mission statement and following goals:
