A Crazy Week at HQ

This week the office was abnormally busy due to the JFA ADA event. It is interesting to see and hear all the activity around you as you work.

Wednesday was the day of the JFA ADA event over at the Hart Senate Building. Before the event the AAPD office was akin to a bee hive. All kinds of people were coming in and out of the office in the hours preceding the event. The conference room was converted into a film set were one of the other interns was being interviewed. Outside of the office somewhere the AAPD board members were having a separate breakfast and lunch events. Some of them came over after lunch and brought leftovers to eat. I meet one of the board members who is the president of a consulting firm that AAPD is affiliated with.

I will be in DC this Saturday for the Newseum tour and the dinner with the Immediate Past Chair of AAPD. I hope you are able attend. As this internship program draws to a close I hope that you are able to take advantage of being be Washington, DC while you still can.

Have great weekend and a productive work week.
