APC is Saying Goodbye to Longtime Staff
APC is delighted and saddened to announce the upcoming retirement of Diane Gerard, Membership Coordinator at APC. Diane has been an exceptional member of our national office staff for over 15 years, assisting members and prospective members with registrations, renewals, resources and more. We are grateful for all the amazing work Diane has done for APC and for the profession in her time at APC and we wish her a very happy retirement!
APC is excited to announce our newest staff member Emily Tyler, Membership and Communications Specialist, who will be taking over many of Diane’s responsibilities. Emily comes to APC after nearly 10 years at the Church of the Brethren where she most recently served as Director of Brethren Volunteer Service. We hope you will join us in welcoming Emily.
We are also happy to share with you that APC’s Chief Operating Officer, Carol Pape CAE has recently left APC to take on a new position as Executive Director with an association management company in the Chicagoland area. We will miss Carol but are so excited for her.
