Thank you to Jeff Brinton and intro. to new Executive Director of Cultural Industries:
APPA would like to thank Jeff Brinton, outgoing Executive Director of CI, for all his support in getting APPA off the ground and running. We couldn't have done it without him! All the best to Jeff in his new position.
We extend a warm welcome to the new Executive Director of Cultural Industries, Greg Ball. The Board will be meeting with Greg in late May. We look forward to continuing to build a strong relationship with the department.
Banff Media Festival:
APPA is sponsoring the Banff Media Festival for the first time. The Board will be manning the booth for the duration of the Festival in order to promote and raise awareness of the opportunities to Post in Alberta. Drop by and say hi if you are attending. We are able to do this thanks to our members and the Government of Alberta Community Development grant! THANK YOU!
