Historical Info for RPL Students

Historical Info for RPL Students

Does your Chapter have a Historian?  If no, who maintains the records?

Holly Wayt, Westerville Communications, who is the north-central regional rep for APCO’s Board of Directors, is currently holding on to our archives.  She’s not officially our historian but she’s keeping what’s left of our records safe!


Where is our Chapter Charter located and has it recently been on display for our chapter membership?

Unfortunately the original charter was destroyed when the old Medina County Sheriff’s Office building in was leveled into a parking lot. In talking with Harold Carter, former chapter secretary (in the 1980′s and early 90′s), the sheriff basically threw out everything. Nobody has been able to produce a copy but there may be some out there.


When was our APCO chapter actually established?

We were chartered on September 20, 1944 as charter # 7


Who were the people who petitioned APCO to establish our chapter and what leadership roles did each of them later play in the growth of the chapter?

The answer to this is unknown. Research to date on this question has failed to turn up any of this information.


Has anyone ever compiled a complete listing of all past officers for the chapter?  When was that list last updated?  Is a copy of the list available for the chapter membership?

We do not have a list from original inception of the chapter.  We know now to keep better documentation as time marches on.


Many RPL students also ask if our members have served on the APCO International Board.

Past members serving as APCO International President or APCO’s Board of Directors:

Russ Robinson, 1981-1982 (Michigan Chapter member who was dual chapter with Ohio for some time)
Lynne Feller, past chapter president and Executive Council Representative,  APCO Board of Directors 2009-2012
Holly Wayt, past chapter president and Executive Council Representative, APCO Board of Directors 2013-2016 – Current 2nd VP candidate
