It is with great sadness to report that the membership, at a special meeting on Feb 5 of 2017, voted to dissolve the association. The APPI officers will be walking through the steps to make all the final legal arrangements to close out the business of the association. We encourage you to attend another affiliate group of your choice. Consider PPANI or SIAL here in Illinois. Also Iowa has a group that is close for Northern people. PPN which is Kentucky's group meets in January in Cincinnati. It was a great show this year and is a close drive for most of Illinois people. We will keep the Facebook pages up for a short time so people can see this news. Thank you to all who have participated and led over the years.
