About GAPA

President’s Message                               

GAPA Members,

We are now home from the best GAPA summer conference in recent history! Conference Chairs Jim Gordon and Mary Vacala, members of the CPC, and the team at Dillehay Management Group (Chuck, Carol, Lynne, Natasha & Alicia) worked tirelessly for months and on-site ensuring that all logistics were handled perfectly. From the workshops, educational topics/speakers and student track to the sold out exhibit hall and sponsored meal sessions, everything was seamless and amazing. We hope you enjoyed your time in Hilton Head Island, and look forward to seeing you next year in Sandestin, FL, July 15 – 19!

I would also like to thank John Filson for all his hard work and dedication to the GAPA, his vision for the future, and making another chapter in our profession’s book of development. Our special guest, Ken Ferrell, PA was a treat. What pleasure to meet him and have the opportunity to hear his story from truly the beginning of time for the PA profession; as well as, his perspective on the future of PAs to come.

And a special thank you to everyone for giving me another opportunity to lead this wonderful organization. I am very eager to get to work. I look forward to sharing our plans for this year in upcoming emails. Stay tuned!


Tim Dare, PA-C
GAPA President 2017 – 2018
