A Message from APRA President Joe Kripli

With the end of 2015 fast approaching comes the move of our Chantilly Office to a much improved efficient, modern office in Gainesville, Virginia. See the information above. 

Along with this move comes the end of an era as Jeanie Magathan, Marlene Kostinas, and Kathy Olson depart to explore other career opportunities. I want to thank this group of professionals who have worked diligently for APRA and its Members for many years and wish them all the best in their new endeavors.

The APRA wishes all of our Members/Suppliers and their families, Happy Holidays and great joy in the New Year!
-Joe Kripli
