There are other marketing options as well, both on the AREA web page and in our newsletter. An example of our need is to revamp our website.

CE CREDITS UPDATES— Due to cancellation of the 2020 conference, the Board has decided to extend the time frame in which CEA credit must be completed for one year from its original date.

BOARD UPDATES— We extend giant thank-you’s to Jeffrey Joy and to Erik Volk for their past service and for their many contributions to the AREA Board. We will miss you, your contributions, twisted senses of humor, and your commitment. Following the 2020 elections, we welcome Dr. Eugene Van de Bittner and Matthew Sims who recently joined the AREA Board. We are looking forward to many good things to come as we together serve the membership.
