Beginning in January, Labane-Godfrey will serve as Immediate Past President.

As President of NAPPS, Labane-Godfrey was responsible for leading the strategic vision of the board of directors on behalf of the NAPPS membership. In addition to her duties as President, Labane-Godfrey serves NAPPS as Marketing Committee Chair, where she designed current organizational marketing, sales and public relations strategies; developed a corporate partnership/sponsor program; and was instrumental in the implementation of new educational and animal support programs.

NAPPS is a national nonprofit trade association dedicated to promoting the concept of in-home pet care, supporting the professionals engaged in at-home pet care, promoting the welfare of animals, and improving and expanding the industry of pet sitting. NAPPS provides valuable credibility, networking and education to help foster the success of their members.

The NAPPS Board of Directors is composed of pet sitters, business owners, and entrepreneurs who are leaders in the at-home pet care industry. Unlike other national associations, NAPPS is the only nonprofit association run by members, for members. In this capacity, board members are responsible for helping to shape the agenda and direction of the association, providing tools and support to foster the success of members' businesses, promoting the value of pet sitting to the public, and advocating for the welfare of animals.

"On behalf of the association, I would like to thank Candance for her service and commitment to NAPPS," commented Felicia Lembesis, CAE, executive director of the association. "NAPPS is fortunate to have had such a dedicated individual working to further the goals of the organization and the interests of the industry."

In addition, Labane-Godfrey has created and maintains an extensive support library for clients, including information on training, behavior issues, diseases, first aid, natural healing, and holistic veterinarians. She also uses and suggests pet support equipment such as heated/cooled beds, pet fountains, traveling carriers, and pet safety protectors.
