Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BABYLON, N.Y. - Feb 17, 2017 - American Pet Professionals is celebrating their 8th Year Anniversary this February! What started on a whim, as a way to bring together pet professionals from all areas of the industry back on February 24, 2009, has grown into a national networking and educational organization for the pet industry, now with members all across the country.
The organization was created by Nancy Hassel, who wanted to help pet professionals work together, learn from each other, and to make new connections to grow their businesses. Since it’s inception, nearly 100, in-person networking educational events have taken place under Hassel’s direction in the past 8 years. Including events in Chicago, Connecticut, New York City, New Jersey and Long Island. With expert speakers from inside the industry and outside of the industry covering timely business topics and focuses for their non-profit members.
In addition to in-person events, members can learn from webinars, a bi-monthly members only newsletter, new FB live Q&A Tuesdays within their private member group, business consultations and guidance along with many other membership benefits.
Many members have gained tremendous press and media attention just from being a member due to Nancy being a public relation professional in the pet industry. Just one of the many membership perks.
“The past 8 years have been an incredible ride in our wonderful pet industry. When the very first event was held, it was never my intention to turn this into a business – but the demand was there, and everyone at the event was asking when the next one would be. The rest is history as they say, and we still have many members today that were at our very first event,” said President and Founder, Nancy Hassel. “I really believe this is the best industry to be in, everyone’s love of animals and passion shines through and I feel privileged to have met and know so many supportive and driven pet professionals. It has always been about ‘we’ as a pet professional community. We always strive for the best by bringing as much information, education and know-how to our members. I am excited for the future and the new ideas we will be bringing to the table!”
