2014 Florida APA Regional Conference Attendees
Greetings from your new Communication Chair Barbara Prieto
Dear Florida APA Members,
When I was asked to be your new Communication Chair I took a leap of faith and said "Yes!" with my heart and then my brain caught up and said "What, did you just get yourself into? You know nothing about websites!"  I told Nancy Fine and her reply was "You'll be fine."  A few weeks later the 2014 Florida Region Conference followed and as I sat in the class 'Social Media' taught by Rev. Amalie Ash, our Presbytery Administrator I felt that I had made the right decision.  I look forward to walk the path set by others who have done this job before me and help to continue to spread the word about the Florida APA Region.  I will make mistakes, but my hope is to learn from those mistakes.
Peace and Grace,
Barbara Prieto
APA FL Region Communication Chair
