Volunteers Needed for Project Access at AAPA Conference

This year’s AAPA Conference is being held in Las Vegas, and PAEA has planned several visits as part of our Project Access outreach program on May 16–18. We are now seeking volunteers to visit the schools.

Tuesday, May 16

  • West Preparatory Academy (5 presentations)
