A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT, KATHY FISHER:
It was so great to see so many of you at the Sunset Marquis, Veda Spa and the Montage Hotel these past 2 months. Thank you so much for all your support of ACPA and our amazing hosts. The board and I are working hard to provide our membership with quality programming, networking and useful resources to excel all aspects of ACPA. We want to hear from each of you as well so please take a few moments to contact me at Kathy@acpa-la.com with any comments you have about meetings, suggested hosts, mixers, master classes, etc.
Also, I will be managing the future FAM trips and hope to schedule one sometime this summer. The board members are working hard on their respective positions to offer the members the best events, website, membership activities, BOB, job bank, charity participation and managing the treasury and I appreciate them volunteering their time and efforts!
Also, if you have any interest in joining the board we have the following positions open:
- Director of Raffles & Gift Bags
Thank you for your kind words of encouragement as I navigate through this new position as President and look forward to seeing you on the 25th at the upcoming mixer!
Thank you Vicki for creating our new ACPA Insider!!!!

UPDATES FROM OUR DIRECTOR OF MEMBERSHIP, EMMA BAKSI:
I’d like to give a warm welcome to all our new members for 2019:
RAFFLES & GIFT BAGS:
We ask all members to remember we are always on the lookout for amazing raffle prizes and gift bag items. If you know of anyone who can donate, please let us know. For raffles, we ask the minimum value should be $150. For gift bags, we need quantity 50 of the same item minimum. Vendor will get social media coverage as well as a listing on the ACPA website.
UPDATES FROM OUR DIRECTOR OF EVENTS & SOCIAL MEDIA,
We are looking for an official photographer who can take photos (smartphone is fine) at our meetings. Our hope is that you would attend every meeting and mixer so we can capture these events on digital for our website and social media pages. Please contact me at email@example.com if you are interested. This is not a board position, it’s a volunteer position.
FEBRUARY MEMBERS MEETING RECAP @ SUNSET MARQUIS:
Our host, Sunset Marquis really outdid themselves for our February meeting. We featured Steven Tyler’s charity Janie’s Fund and wanted to thank ALL of you for bringing a gift card donation. We hope you loved the Mirror Me photo booth as well. Here is their contact info below if you wish to use them at your client’s event. Please mention the ACPA.

We also suggest you send Regina a thank you email for hosting.
