"Do something, even if it is wrong, do something."
- Dick Apland
So we did. We created the Dick Apland Scholarship.
Dad was involved in every level of the Chamber world, from running small-town Chambers (who knows where Harlan, Iowa is?) to teaching at Institute. He pioneered the Chamber affinity program, bringing the concept and framework to Chambers across the country, learning from and sharing with everyone he worked with.
The scholarship honors Dad's passion to share the energy, knowledge, ideas, magic, community and just plain fun that ASCP has to offer.
