Whether you are an APA member or the partner or friend of one, you’ll want to plan on attending the events that the APA Alliance is sponsoring at APA’s 2003 annual meeting in San Francisco. More information on these events will be available at the APA Alliance’s booth in the Moscone Center.
A highlight of the Alliance’s schedule of activities is its annual luncheon, to be held at the City Club of San Francisco. This year’s speaker is California Assemblywoman Helen Thomson, who devoted much of her career as a legislator to addressing health and mental health issues. The luncheon will be followed by an architectural tour of the City Club by Masha Zakheim, daughter of a renowned local artist of the 1930s, Bernard Zakheim.
