NC APBP kicks off their new chapter with a series of happy hour socials across the state at the end of January 2017. Individual chapter leaders dispersed across North Carolina are hosting each social and have worked together to coordinate the messaging. The chapter has received a great amount of interest promoting the kickoff and plans to use the momentum to identify individuals at the local level who would be interested in helping to coordinate a follow-up series of regional forums proposed in March 2017. Individuals are being sought to co-lead a forum, present a pechakucha or TED style talk, or lead a focus group.
