Board of Directors

The voting members elect the members of the BOD, which is responsible for setting the strategic course of the organization, aligned to AAPA’s mission and vision. The Academy’s strategic plan and operational goals are just the start of this process. The BOD is responsible for the Academy’s corporate actions that direct management of the organization, establish organizational policies, and direct the assets of the organization.

In practice, this has a variety of implications from the adoption and oversight of the Academy’s annual budget, to the recognition of constituency groups, to external and public outreach.  The BOD’s work is supported by a number of Board committees and volunteer Commissions and Work Groups that provide additional council and expertise.

Detailed information on the BOD’s duties can be found in the AAPA Bylaws.
