AAPL Board Report

I sat in as a substitute director for TAPL at the last AAPL quarterly board meeting in San Antonio in March.  I have had the opportunity to set in on about 15 meetings over the years and I must say that this was the shortest and least controversial one that I have ever seen.  The report on the recent NAPE turnout and financials were bigger than ever.  There were close to 1,600 booths, and 15,767 attendees, which is an average increase on both of around 10% over last year.  AAPL netted around $1.85 Million after the profit split with the other NAPE owners, but AAPL also got $697,000 as their management fee, which of course pays for a lot of AAPL overall overhead.  Overall, AAPL is now sitting on around $9.4 Million in assets but netted only $687,031 last fiscal …

AAPL Quarterly Meeting Report

Our regular AAPL Board member, Debi Langley, was not able to go, so I sat in for her as a substitute director for TAPL at the last AAPL Quarterly Board meeting on December 2, 2007 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.  The following is a report on that meeting to the TAPL members.   Certification Proposed Changes – No Changes    The main subject of discussion at the meeting was the proposed revisions to the AAPL Certification Program.  In a desire to position AAPL and its associations to be able to deal with what is perceived to be potential state-licensing for Landmen, the National Certification Committee had recommended that continuing education credits be done on an annual basis like other state-certified professions.  After much debate, the bottom line is the proposed revisions did not pass.  While the topic took up most of the …
