Become a Volunteer Leader

You can be a leader within AAPA or within your constituent organization.

  • AAPA volunteer leadership
    Many of the Academy’s functions are handled by its volunteers. Opportunities include task forces, focus groups or expert panels. You can also conduct individual consultations with PAs and other experts who have experience in a particular healthcare environment or specialty area.
  • Constituent organization leadership
    Constituent organizations are independent organizations affiliated with AAPA. They provide their members locally based CME, networking opportunities, social gatherings, timely information, advocacy and job resources.
