PAA Unification Announcement On January 14, representatives from each regional affiliate (PAA West, Central and East) came together in Camp Hill to agree on a framework for the governance of a unified PAA. Our goal was to assure that the members needs and concerns from all three regions was represented and respected. If you start with the premise that creating a statewide association would benefit our members and industry, then the path to success is much straighter. Unification recognizes the uniqueness of the three regions joining together so that large scale strategic goals can be set while localized needs are met. We are creating something new, something better, maybe even something we have not envisioned. We will respect and understand our history while not letting it tie us to prior traditions and processes.
We are pleased to announce that PAA Central, East, and West Boards have approved the new governance structure for a unified PAA.
The PAA STAFF
There is much work to be done before December 31st to bring unification to a reality. Over the next few months we will be hosting town hall webinars where we will share the new structure and welcome input and feedback from our members. We appreciate the support and encouragement we have received from our members thus far but are mindful that some may still have reservations and questions. We want this process to be open and transparent. Please reach out to your regional staff and leadership to discuss any issues or questions.
