COVID-19 Resources

Impact of the COVID-19 are evolving quickly and drastically impacting the way we live, work and interact with each other.  AAPA realizes there is nothing more important than your safety and we are taking precaution by moving our program session via virtual and have gathered resources below to help in this time of uncertainty.

We have been updating our website to reflect our response to COVID-19 with these resource pages that include a Roadmap for Employees and a Roadmap for Small Business Owners. We’ve gone through the process of sifting through the information for you. These are intended to be focused guides to help you through this crisis. Additionally, we’ve compiled a list of job opportunities that come from the inside networks of our AAPA mentors and partners. Sometimes it is who you know that will help you get to the next step in your professional lives. Let AAPA be that source for you.
