Upcoming events


Welcome 2023!

The Apra-MN board will have its retreat in January to plan the year out, including events, the conference, partnerships, and development opportunities! If you feel like contributing to Apra-MN, want to add some great committee work to your resume, or you just want to join a dynamic group providing opportunities to our colleagues, there's lots of ways to get involved! If you're a goal setter, make this one for your list! Become a mentor, host an event in person or virtually, present a topic at an event or the Fall Conference, or join a committee! We are always looking for new voices for our Programming Committee, Membership Committee, and Marketing Committee. If you are interested, contact a board member today!
