Board of Directors

AAPA’s Board of Directors (BOD) is responsible for setting the strategic course for the organization in alignment with AAPA’s mission, vision and values. This work is manifested in the Academy’s strategic plan and operational goals. As fiduciaries, the BOD is also responsible for the Academy’s corporate actions directing the management of the organization and its financial health.

In practice, this results in a variety of actions – 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 BOD 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. The BOD’s operations are governed by the BOD Policy Manual. The BOD is also guided by adopted shared values that are reviewed at each meeting.
