Rest in peace, GPWA Jim
It is with heavy hearts that we announce Jim Keith -- known as "GPWA Jim" on the forums -- passed away late last week. Jim joined our staff in December 2014 and has worked closely with many of the affiliate managers at the GPWA over the years. He was a regular attendee at affiliate conferences and was one of the original auditors for the APCW when the program was first put into place. Jim is survived by his wife, Amanda, and he was also a childhood friend of both Anthony and J. Todd. We ask you to join us in keeping them in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Do you have life insurance?
Buying life insurance is something we all hope will prove to be a really bad investment, something we purchase with the hope it will never actually be used. But providing family members with financial resources in the event of the unthinkable is a good thing and has been on our minds this past week. For this week's poll, we encourage folks to think about whether they have the right amount of insurance given their responsibilities to others. View poll
