IRSPA has experienced many fruitful years and we are looking forward to 2017.
Our 2016 Annual Meeting was held in Marshalltown with approximately 100 in
attendance and was a HUGH SUCCESS thanks to Carole and Bert Permar,
co-presidents and the unit members of the Marshall County Unit of IRSPA.
Our 2017 Annual Meeting will be held in Cedar Falls, IA, on October 4-5.

The IRSPA by-laws have been reviewed and many changes have been made
mostly in the verbiage(editorial changes ). The changes can be found on this page before
the newsletters are listed. Additional changes will be reviewed in the coming months.
An IRSPA membership card is in the works for all members and a committee is
working with AMBA to create this card.
VOLUNTEERS MAKE A DIFFERENCE! our 49 units in our six districts have been
working very hard to keep a record of all of our volunteer hours. In the 2015-2016 year
IRSPA totaled 413,291 hours from 5,919 members. At a national rate of $23.56 per hour
this equals $9,737,135.30. This is $515,104.40 more than 2014-2015.
In early November, IRSPA President Dawn Rogers, President-Elect Chris Campidilli, and Iowa State AARP Director Kent Sovern met with Iowa Governor Terry Branstad to present the State of Iowa a mock-up check for $9,737,135.30.,the total amount of what our IRSPA members donated in time and effort.
