A Year in NAPDA’s Life
On January 15, 2017, the Old Timers Cabin hosted NAPDA’s Annual General Meeting (AGM). Most members and staff attended the event. Each attendant received NAPDA’s Annual Report 2016, which reviews the major milestones and achievements of the year. It also includes reports by each officer, such as the President’s Report, History Report, Secretary’s Report, and Executive Director’s Report.
