President’s Message

I would like to invite any school or vendor who is not currently a member to join our association! Remember, the greatest benefit of being a member of an association is that all of us working collectively and sharing resources can positively impact our industry much more than any one of us standing alone. Please check out our “importance of membership” page to access the membership forms. Vendors, please use the allied membership form when you join. If you have any questions or need any assistance, please call me at 318-841-1228 or e-mail me at cstripling@ayers.edu. I look forward to working with everyone in the future. Sincerely, Chuck Stripling LAPCS-President 8820 Jewella Ave, Shreveport, LA 71108. Phone : (318) 841-1228 Email : cstripling@ayers.edu
