Looking Back Through Our Century: June 1998
Some of our younger practitioners have always had the ability to look up information on the Internet, however many of us can recall a time when we couldn't ask Google. It took 407 hours of effort and 25.6 megabites of storage on a hard disk to bring APEM's website to completion. On June 26, 1998, the Association's first website would be available for general use. Read the news story to learn about the process from the volunteer mastermind behind the website.
2020 Practitioner Survey
Last call for participation! All practitioners are encouraged to share their input in this year's Practitioner Survey, which is available online until Monday, June 29. The survey is anonymous and should take no more than five minutes to complete. Thank you to the practitioners who have already completed our 2020 survey. We appreciate you taking the time to provide valuable feedback as the Association strives to continue to grow and support our practitioners.
