Episode 5:

A Conversation with the American Society for Adaptation Professionals

Guest: Beth Gibbons

Broadcast August 15, 2016
Beth Gibbons, Managing Director of the American Society of Adaptation Professionals (ASAP) talks shop with Doug Parsons. Beth is the new Managing Director of ASAP: if you are an existing member, hear what she has to stay about the future of ASAP; and, if you are considering joining, learn more about how the society can be relevant to your work, or how you can be relevant to the society! Also, Beth and Doug discuss (and sometimes debate!) what happens next with adaptation policy; getting out of the shadow of mitigation; should adaptation professional be certified; and much more. Tune in for all things adaptation and if you should join A.S.A.P., ASAP! (sorry, couldn’t resist).
