NAPA Members and the Navy PA Community: Due to a lack of command funding across the Navy for Navy PAs to attend the 2019 AAPA Annual Conference in Denver from May 18-22, NAPA will NOT to hold it’s annual NAPA meeting there this year, but will still hold a Navy PA and NAPA member social gathering during the AAPA Conference. The annual NAPA meeting will be moved to Portsmouth, VA this year to be held in conjunction with the NAPA East Symposium on October 16-17, 2019. An estimated 30 or more PAs will be in attendance. For those who cannot attend or are on the west coast we plan to broadcast the symposium via NAPA Facebook live video for all to tune in.  The date and time is still to be determined. Please stay tuned for specifics, once finalized we will be emailing our members, as well as posting for all to see on our NAPA website and NAPA Facebook page. Thank you. 

NAPA Elections 2019: The following positions are taking nominations for 2019 NAPA leadership positions: NAPA President-Elect, NAPA Student Director, NAPA-East and NAPA-West President, Vice-President and Secretary. If you know (or are) a Navy PA who wants to make a direct impact, please nominate them by 01 May 2019 to be considered. Please see our Leadership Opportunities page here for more information.
