Executive Committee Positions: The Executive Committee manages the affairs of the association. The committee meets in person once a year, immediately before the Annual Meeting, and virtually as required throughout the year. Each committee member is tasked with a specific responsibility (listed below for the current Executive Committee). More information about the role of the Executive Committee and of the Membership and Credentials Committee can be found in the Association's Constitution and Bylaws.
Nominations are requested from the AAPA membership for the following positions:
President Elect (4 year total term: 1 year as President Elect, 2 years as President, 1 year as Past President)
Vice President (2 year term)
Secretary (2 year term)
Executive Committee Member & Chair of the Career Development Committee (3 year term)
Eligibility: Nominees must be AAPA Regular Members in good standing. The President Elect should ideally have prior experience in serving on the AAPA Executive Committee. Any AAPA member (student, regular, or special) may submit a nomination. Self nominations are encouraged. To check a nominee's membership status, login at http://birenheide.com/AAPA/memberinfo.php and go to the directory of members.
Nomination Slate: From the proposed eligible nominees, the AAPA Nominations Committee, chaired by Dr. Leslie Aiello, will seek input from the Executive Committee regarding the slate of nominees and recommend to the Executive Committee two candidates per position and alternates for the official ballot. The President will contact potential candidates in advance of the ballot to obtain their willingness to run.
Voting: A link to the online ballot will be emailed to Regular Members in January. The poll closes in late February.
