PRESIDENT'S LETTER
Enthusiasm brings opportunities

The APMM is now more than 3 months removed from our long-awaited and often-delayed biennial conference. Already the board has started discussing and planning an abbreviated virtual conference in March of 2022. Finally and confidently, we are beginning to plan our next in-real-life gathering in March of 2023. While our model making world may still need more time to feel normal and for business travel to begin again, we can’t help but celebrate some of the great opportunities that fell into our hands as APMM worked its way through the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pros are Standing By...

Did you know that the APMM Forum on our website has a topic that lets you share your vast knowledge and experience (or ask others about your pressing project problems)? Well, it does, and you can! 

This page is open to the public, and we're hoping it will get model makers more visibility as people who know a lot about all kinds of making and manufacturing. If you haven't already, please set your member profile preferences to receive notifications of Forum activity. By answering or asking questions you'll be helping others, and the APMM; and who doesn't like to show off their skills and drop some knowledge?
