Our volunteer engagement structure allows for the creation of a wide variety of task-oriented, high-speed, outcome-focused volunteer opportunities. You will play an integral role in addressing the ever-widening range of issues affecting healthcare and other topics relevant to our Strategic Plan.

Help update AAPA Model State Legislation for PAs: Initially
drafted in 1991 and amended periodically, AAPA’s Model State Legislation for
PAs lays out key elements of professional regulation and works to assist
state constituent organizations as they pursue improvements in state laws and
rules governing PA practice and patient access to care. We're looking for volunteers
to review and update the current model. Interested
individuals may apply online. Applications are due by Friday, Oct. 10, 2014.
