IAAPPA is a chapter within MAPPA (midwest region). The state and regional chapters often provide a member’s first introduction to APPA. There are bi-annual conferences hosted by IAAPPA, throughout the state of Iowa, on topics you need. They are held in the spring and fall. Drive-in Workshops are also ways to attend or host a free half-day training session for employees. There are also knowledge-sharing opportunities with institutional colleagues and IAAPPA business partners who understand the local education market and regulations.
