The Alabama Association of Public Personnel Administrators which is the Alabama Chapter of IPMA-HR was selected as the outstanding Southern Region IPMA-HR Chapter for 2009.

There is no doubt that the lavish southern hospitality and social events, beautiful Bellingrath Gardens, championship golf, and a dynamite program at the Southern Region Conference in Mobile confirmed the decision of the Awards Committee in selecting Alabama. The nomination, however, was submitted prior to the conference and highlighted Alabama's pioneer efforts in the promoting professionalism in public human resource management. We should be very proud that our chapter, in concert with the Center for Governmental Services at Auburn University, developed a certification program that pre-dates the National IPMA-HR certification.

We continue to exhibit both personal professionalism and a commitment to foster professionalism in our field throughout our state. Congratulations to each member of AAPPA - you truly earned this honor.
