Santhouse Honored for Two Decades of Leadership
APA honored Kathy Santhouse, CPP, with the Board of Directors Award during this year's Congress for her 20 years as an APA Director and National Officer.
"Kathy helped guide the APA through times of growth and achievement, including the expansion of APA's chapters, launch of National Payroll Week®, the APA's presence on the web, and the establishment of the Global Payroll Management Institute," APA Executive Director Dan Maddux said.
"She also spent many of those years as a dedicated member of the board's executive committee, where her independent voice and thoughtful leadership were among her many invaluable assets."
Santhouse completed her final term as Director during the Annual Business Meeting on May 16 and was recognized for her service during the Opening General Session at Congress. She will continue to serve as an APA Ambassador.
