Caucus or Not to Caucus?

Caucus or Not to Caucus?

What is a “caucus” and what do they do? Webster’s defines “Caucus” as 1) part of a legislative process; 2) any meeting or group organized to further a special interest or cause. The AAPA has several Special Interest Caucuses who support various issues. So AAPA members who are veterans, friends or family of veterans, care for veterans, or are simply interested in veteran’s health or any veteran’s issues are eligible to become a member of the Veteran’s Caucus (known from this point as “the Caucus”) of the AAPA.

Donation of brick for Bubba Gwinn scanned info.pdf page 1
On October 15, 2016, landscaping and construction will begin to upgrade the Veteran Memorial Garden at the Eugene A. Stead, Jr. Center for Physician Assistants into a place of remembrance for Physician Assistants who are veterans or who are currently serving in the uniformed services of the USA.   The PA History Society welcomes all to become a part of this wonderful event by purchasing name engraved brick pavers to be embedded in the wheelchair accessible walkway and the patio area surrounding the life-size bronze combat medic statue and flagpole, the centerpiece of the garden. 

  Beginning July 1st 2016 through October 1, 2016 we are offering the opportunity to purchase a 9x9 inch named engraved brick pavers to PAs who are veterans or who are on active duty for $100 each.  We have the capacity to embed 400 pavers in the sidewalk and patio, so please do not delay in purchasing pavers so that your name or that of someone you want to honor is displayed prominently in the garden.  The insignia of your branch of service, name and date of service can be engraved on the paver.  For more information on this project, and to  order your pavers, please visit  the PA History Website at
