Take a Proactive Role in Supporting AAPA Advocacy Efforts
March 15, 2023
In our ongoing effort to provide opportunities for AAPA members to engage in advocacy activities on behalf of the PA profession, the AAPA Advocacy and Government Relations staff is providing the following information for AAPA members who wish to make a commitment to take a proactive role in supporting AAPA advocacy efforts. Please review the following opportunities and make a commitment to AAPA advocacy today!
Become an AAPA Key Contact
AAPA’s Key Contact program is a national network of PAs who have an existing relationship with a member of Congress (or who would be willing to build one), and who would be willing to maintain those positive relationships through advocacy on AAPA policy priorities throughout the year.
By signing up to be a Key Contact, you commit to do at least one of the following this year:
In return for your commitment to AAPA advocacy, AAPA Key Contacts will have the opportunity to participate in virtual advocacy training and policy briefings from AAPA Advocacy staff, and email updates containing information on advocacy activities and highlights from fellow key contacts.
Inform AAPA about Emerging/Challenging Policy Issues
Are you dealing with an emerging or challenging legislative, regulatory, or professional practice policy issue and need AAPA’s assistance? In an effort to assist AAPA members with these issues, the Advocacy and Government Relations team has developed a process for members to share information on policy issues that may have a negative impact on your practice and potentially other PAs. Please use the AAPA Policy Issue Identification Worksheet to provide us with further information.
Completing this brief worksheet will provide AAPA Advocacy & Government Relations staff with the core information necessary to assess the potential impact of the policy, and determine if the issue aligns with AAPA’s policy priorities and whether action is required. AAPA staff will evaluate each submission and if warranted, devise a strategy to address the proposed policy issue.
If you have any questions regarding these opportunities, email [email protected]. We look forward to having you make a commitment to advocacy on behalf of the profession. Thank you!
