What is AAPPA-HR?

Alabama Association of Public Personnel Administrators is a non-profit organizations whose members work in state, county, municipal governments, public utilities and regional planning commissions.  Any person working in public sector HR is eligible for membership.

Due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and the uncertainty of its continued spread in Alabama, all classes scheduled from March 16 – May 31 are cancelled in a face-to-face format. We are working hard to examine our options for rescheduling. While some classes will be able to be rescheduled later in the year, others may not be rescheduled until next year.  All participants enrolled in cancelled courses will be advised of the changes as they occur and will automatically be enrolled in the rescheduled class. We will email current registrants with more details as they are available and we hope that you are satisfied with our solution. There will be no cancellations fees for any class registration through May 31st.  Please continue to be patient as we work out the details over the coming weeks and we will post all changes on the GEDI website as soon as we can.”
