AAPA is a member-driven organization with many stakeholders participating in the governance structure. Each leadership group – from individual members to the Board of Directors – plays a different role but shares responsibility for ensuring AAPA remains strong, relevant and responsive to the needs of the PA community.
The AAPA Board of Directors is the governing body responsible for AAPA’s strategic, administrative and financial management.
The House of Delegates is responsible for enacting policies establishing the collective values, philosophies and principals of the PA profession.
The Student Academy Board of Directors and AOR lead student efforts to further the mission of the Academy and move toward our vision of the future.
Volunteer leaders represent the AAPA in more than 400 opportunities to represent the AAPA and the profession, from long-term appointments to one-day activities.
Members are the driving force behind AAPA governance, electing our leaders and providing the direction they wish to see.
