IAPA EC Biannual Meeting: This meeting will be on October 26th and 27th. On the evening of October 26th there will also be a scientific dinner meeting between 6-10 PM at: DoubleTree by Hilton Baltimore - BWI Airport; 890 Elkridge Landing Road, Linthicum, Maryland, 21090. We invite all IAPA members to attend this meeting.
On a personal note, my summer has been both exciting and interesting. It has been filled with traveling, starting a new practice in DC, and helping my children move into their new homes in New York. These last few months I have experienced so many acts of kindness that have touched me and rekindled my spirit of volunteerism: neighbors checking on our house when we were away, friends assisting me with my new practice in DC, and strangers offering a seat in a crowded train. All these may seem like little acts of generosity but they add up and renew meaning to the adage - No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. However, volunteerism is not a new concept for IAPA members. In fact, this is the building block of IAPA along with other additives: dedication, enthusiasm, and going the extra mile!
So here is to another year of kindness and giving!
