Your Voice
The changes the Governance Commission (GovCom) brought to the 2019 election process were specifically designed to bring greater transparency to how those who represent you are elected and greater parity between the various pathways to a seat on the Board of Directors and within the other AAPA elections.

Each individual candidate has a robust online profile featuring platform statements, short answer questions, contact information, and more. New this year, candidates were provided the opportunity to tell their story through written, video, and audio materials. Members are also invited to attend the Meet the Candidates forums to personally get to know the candidates seeking office.

The intention of GovCom is to deliver candidate information in a variety of formats that reflect how our members want to learn and engage. GovCom hopes a well-informed electorate, excited about what each candidate brings to the table, will drive greater member engagement when voting begins in May.

Your Vote
Selecting the leaders of the Academy is a premier benefit of fellow membership and is critical to ensuring those leading the organization reflect the needs, values, and vision of its members.

House Officers and Nominating Work Group members will be elected by the House of Delegates at the House’s General Session III on Monday, May 20.

Voting in the Board General Election will begin on May 22 at 9 a.m. EDT and conclude on June 3 at 5 p.m. EDT. Don’t forget to confirm your membership status as a current fellow and your email address prior to May 7 to ensure you receive your official ballot when the election opens. If you are not a current fellow member on or before May 7, you will not be eligible to vote.
