Constituent Organizations


More than 100 state and federal service chapters, specialty organizations, caucuses and special interest groups make up AAPA’s constituent organization (CO) community.

Together, AAPA and COs collaborate to equip PAs for expanded opportunities in healthcare, advance the PA identity, and create progressive work environments for PAs. COs provide services and resources at the federal and local levels, by practice specialty, and through special interests.

COs are a critical element to the development and delivery of PA professional resources. Learn more about how you can get involved today by reviewing a list of COs!
