President's Letter to Members

Welcome to CARA, a Western Chapter of APRA International!

As we embark on a new year, CARA expects 2015 to be an exceptional year for its members and nonmembers alike.

CARA will continue to offer high quality educational sessions through its statewide conference, seminar days and webinars to help members to be successful in their field of work.

Join or renew your membership with CARA to partake in many educational opportunities and to stay informed on industry trends and changes.

I joined this organization in 2002 and volunteered, it was an incredible way to meet colleagues and grow in the field. I encourage you to recommend and spread the word to your supervisor, colleagues and coworkers about the great opportunities CARA provides for both networking and education.

And last but not least, a big THANKS to all the hard work and service from outgoing President, Paul Goyne, Secretary, Maggie O’Brien and Volunteer Chair, Sara Boretz. Thank you for six wonderful years!

Stay tuned for registration opportunities for the CARA Statewide Conference on the Queen Mary in Long Beach May 7-8, 2015!

Looking forward to a fantastic year with CARA!
