Reduced Registration Fees Available to Members for Public Administration Consortium Classes
The Arkansas Public Administration Consortium (APAC) will again be holding its “Public Administration Professional Development” workshop series at the ACAAA Training Center in Little Rock.  As part of the hosting arrangement, APAC will be making available a limited number of reduced registration fees to staff members of participating agencies in the Arkansas Community Action Agencies Association (ACAAA).  ACAAA’s discounted rate is $75 for a one-day session and $175 for a two-day session (reduced from the regular rate of $125/one-day, $225/two-day).

To register, visit APAC’s website here and select your desired session to submit a registration form (only the next five sessions are currently eligible to sign up for).  In order to request the discounted ACAAA rate—in the “Payment Information” section of the online registration form—select “Send an invoice” and enter, where requested, the information for ACAAA Chief Operations Officer Terry Bearden: Payment Contact Name (Terry Bearden); Payment Address Address (1111 W. 6th St., Ste.
