Each year AAPA recognizes outstanding constituent organization (CO) programs and projects through the Outreach and Advocacy Awards. The awards program showcases the tremendous work of COs, whose accomplishments are acknowledged during the CO Leadership Forum at Annual Conference. Have you improved a PA practice law or regulation? Have you implemented an innovative CME program? How about a public service initiative or student engagement activities? Each of these examples could make an award-winning CO. All AAPA constituent organizations are eligible to participate. This includes state and federal service chapters, specialty organizations, caucuses and special interest groups. Check out the new award program criteria. Applications for 2017 awards may be submitted now.
