APA Board Saves Assembly Budget

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

fifeLetter to the Blog Editor from James Nininger, MD, Area II Trustee:

“I wanted to thank you for your letter of concern regarding the APA Assembly budget of 2010.   As you know, the Board approved a budget at the December meeting that did not require a further reduction beyond the original $200,000.”

This means that the Assembly will continue to function while shouldering its share of necessary cuts.  Democracy works!
