CAPAL brings together a diverse group of energetic and talented young professionals who otherwise might never have had the opportunity to work together. It’s a special experience being part of a board that’s far more than the sum of its parts and pushes forward the cause of APA leadership further than any of us could individually. As a newcomer to Washington, I couldn’t have found a better way to dive into APA efforts and forge a sense of genuine community.
Ask me about: Leadership positions on the Board
CAPAL gave me a great opportunity to shine. Not only was I able to utilize my work skills to promote the mission, but I was able to incorporate my own ideas to surpass a goal that I had only imagined in the beginning of the year.
Ask me about: The APA Heritage Ball
What is great about being on the Board is that I can be part of the APA community outside of my day job and work towards a great mission. This year it has not only allowed me to develop long lasting friendships and learn more about the importance of leadership in the APA community, but has also given me the opportunity to manage projects and work with a variety of people. There is no doubt that what I learn in my time on CAPAL’s Board will be an asset to me in the future.
