Why Join APAGD?
- At each meeting you’ll learn ideas you can immediately take into your community – and skills that benefit you, your department, and your company.
- As a member of the APAGD, you are part of a team who can work together, share ideas, and better each and every activity department.
- You’ll receive Continuing Education Credits for attending meetings (a requirement to keep up your qualifications).
- Because the best resource we have as Activity Professionals is each other.
Join Us to Better Yourself, Your Department, and the Profession
An activity department can be an island, especially if you’re the only Activity Professional in the building. It can get lonely when you’re the only one coming up with ideas, solving the problems of the department, and planning for upcoming events. No one else understands.
But we do.
Activity Professionals of Greater Dallas is made up of people just like you. We’ve been there and done that, or we’re doing it now, or we’re thinking about doing it . . . either way, we have insights to share. We want to learn from you, too. We’re stronger together.
Membership is just $35, due in January of each year. You’re welcome to join anytime, but we do not pro-rate membership dues. Join now to start earning CEUs, voting in elections, serving on a committee, or if you’re thinking about running for office. To do any of those things, you need to be a member in good standing.
