Monthly Meeting Schedule - DC EAPA meets the third Thursday of every month, excluding August, from 9 - 11 AM.

An opportunity for EAPA Members attending monthly EAPA meetings!!    

 We would like to reward our members who attend our monthly meetings while also promoting our credential. Beginning at our September meeting, for every meeting a DC EAPA member attends, the individual's name will be entered into a drawing to be held in June 2019.  For each meeting a member attends, your name will be entered that number of times.  The winning member will win a paid conference tuition to the EAPA National Conference held in Fall 2019.
