From the MAPA President

       I hope everyone is surviving the continuing saga of the pandemic.  I know that many of us were hoping it would be mostly over by now but that doesn’t seem to be the case.  Thank you all for your commitment to your residents and I know that everyone is going above and beyond as I bet that every community has been affected by the staffing issues that seem to be nationwide, not only in our field but everywhere else.

         And that leaves another hole in the MAPA board as we are looking for a new President and Secretary.  I have moved out of state so will no longer be able to fulfill the President’s role after the September 15th session.  Our Secretary has also resigned due to health reasons (not COVID).  If you are interested in filling out either term, please talk to any of the board members. 

       Thank you for the opportunity of serving you as your President.  It has been an honor and I’m hoping to be back in Minnesota for the NAAP conference next year.  I hope to see a lot of you then!  Until then, take care and thank you again for all that you do for your residents.  You are all truly Rock Stars!
