AP Professionals Kick-Off Weekend – 2024

As an amazing year comes to an end, we look forward to what lies ahead.

As many choose to celebrate the end of the year with Christmas & reflect on what has happened over 365 days, AP does things a bit differently. Once all of the craziness of the holiday season comes to an end, we get to start the new year with something additional to look forward to. Each year our President hosts a kick-off weekend in our home base city of Scottsdale, Arizona. We all get to gather from around to country to enjoy a weekend of team bonding, golf tournaments & a wonderful dinner event.

This year we were able to gather everyone from Portland, Seattle, Vegas & of course Phoenix to start the 2024 year on a high. Holding this kick-off event at the beginning of the year means everyone can come together, refreshed from holiday time off, and focus on what is going to make 2024 great! We learned lots of lessons in 2023 that we all can take with us but, the past is the past & it is time to get excited for what is to come!

Kick-off weekend started on Friday with a Happy Hour at TopGolf for the team. Everyone was so busy catching up, we forgot to check the leaderboards! TopGolf was just a warmup for those interested in participating in an 18-hole course on Saturday morning. AP ended up with two teams of five each to play against each other at the club. Saturday wrapped up with a wonderful dinner event for the AP team & their guests at a steakhouse & ocean club seafood restaurant in Old Town Scottsdale.

Overall, each year this event is one we all look forward to. Although we all communicate on a daily basis, working from home & in other states keeps us physically apart a majority of the time! So being able to see each other in person, have some laughs & catch up puts us all in a refreshed mindset for the upcoming year. We look forward to what 2024 has to offer!

New Year Kick-Off

AP Golf Tournament, UTV Rental & Dinner at Mastro’s City Hall all make for a memorable 2023 Kick-Off weekend!

Each year our President, Jerry Tenenbaum, hosts a kick-off weekend in our homebase city of Scottsdale, Arizona. To show appreciation for the team’s hard work throughout the year, this weekend event is thrown. This also provides a chance for the team to reset for the upcoming year! Our entire internal AP team is invited to join with a guest. This year we flew in team members from Portland, Seattle, Virginia, Vegas, Buffalo and Maryland. It’s not often that the entire team gets to interact in-person, so these events are extra special!  

January 13th, 2023

The weekend started out with an AP Golf Tournament for those who wanted to participate in hitting the green. This Tournament took place at a Scottsdale course where breakfast was held before hand. After a beautiful day on the course, it was time for Happy Hour! Open to all who wanted to join on the patio of the club.

January 14th, 2023

Saturday started off bright and early up in Cave Creek, AZ for the adventure junkies of the group! The team spent a whole half a day driving UTVs through the mountains, canyons & along the Rio Verde River. After getting a bit muddy & grabbing some lunch it was time to head back to Scottsdale. The group got ready for a team dinner at Mastro’s City Hall in Old Town Scottsdale.

Everyone was able to come together for the team dinner that night, which is always the highlight of the weekend. During the 2022 year, we added three new team members to the company. This was a great opportunity for them to meet many of the out-of-town members in person! Due to covid-19 restrictions, a couple members who came on board 2 years ago still hadn’t met everyone face to face!

Overall, kick-off weekend was a huge success. The team was able to bond & share some great laughs! These weekends help us all close the year behind us and look forward to the upcoming year with a refreshed attitude.
