The Song Explained

I have heard what is being billed as the “APEGGA Theme Song” and was wondering if APEGGA has created such a song. If so, is it part of the new branding exercise?

I am sure the membership would appreciate some clarification on this topic.

Editor's Note: In April 2002, as part of the entertainment for the 2002 Summit Awards Gala, something called the APEGGA Theme Song was created exclusively for the Summit Awards Gala, which that year featured the theme Infinite Possibilities: Unlimited Potential.

Entertainment is a regular feature of the awards gala, and the APEGGA Theme Song was part of that year's entertainment package. A CD of the song was left at each place setting as a memento.

It would appear that someone has a copy of the 2002 Summit Awards Gala APEGGA Theme Song and decided to share it with others. However, it is not currently the official APEGGA theme song. In fact, it has never been an official APEGGA theme song beyond its creation and one-time use as an entertainment element of the 2002 Summit Awards Gala.
