On Friday we learned that Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away adding to one of the many losses of 2020. This year will go down in the record books. The quote above is definitely something that will never leave me. We need to empower each other during this difficult time. It’s time that we all work with each other to make sure that our association thrives. Don’t forget to remind other Office Professionals of the importance of coming together this year as it is a negotiation year. We want to make sure everyone’s voice is heard and the only way to do this is by encouraging them to join LPSAOP. Thank you for stepping up to the challenge by joining LPSAOP!  

Please consider joining a committee!

This year we will be trying things a little different as it’s likely all committee meetings will take place via Zoom. Please consider joining a committee as we want to keep events interesting and exciting for members. Review the LPSAOP Committee website to see if any committees interest you. Reach out to Jessica Mlady, President Elect (jmlady@lps.org) if you would like to join a committee. We look forward to seeing your face and hearing your thoughts on how to make LPSAOP even better through the various committees we have!

We will have the opportunity to purchase products October 1st through October 17th! The event link below is public so you don’t have to have a Facebook account to view the information. We also added direct links to the vendors websites from the LPSAOP website on the Virtual Vendor Fair – Fall Fundraiser page.
