Get Involved Now in Association Leadership: Nominations Being Accepted for APHA Committees, Boards


APHA members who want to help guide the Association in its public health mission are now being sought for leadership roles.

APHA's boards and committees, which address a range of public health and Association issues, are seeking new members. The groups that are in need of new members include high-profile bodies such as the Education Board, Publications Board and Committee on Affiliates.

Because APHA is a member-driven organization, committee and board members are responsible for important Association decisions, such as charting a course for implementing APHA policies, advising on member recruitment, selecting award winners and overseeing books published by APHA. More details on duties, requirements and time commitments for each group or position are available on the APHA Web site.

To be considered for service on APHA boards or committees, APHA members can nominate themselves or others. All nominees must be current APHA members and appointments will be made in the spring.

For full details on committees and boards, including complete information on terms, instructions on how to submit nominations and downloadable nominations form, visit www. apha.org/about/gov/ leadership.

Nominations sought for APHA offices

APHA members interested in serving in the Association's highest offices are also being encouraged to step forward and submit themselves for consideration.

APHA will be holding elections in 2008 for its president-elect, three vice presidents and three positions on the Executive Board. APHA's Nominating Committee will officially decide the nomination slate, but members are encouraged to suggest people--either themselves or others--for consideration.

All elected APHA officers must be able to commit for a full term of service: The presidency requires three years in office, with one year as president-elect, one as president and one as immediate past president. The three vice presidents --representing the United States, Canada and Latin America--serve for one year, while Executive Board members serve for four years.

Except for the vice presidents for Canada and Latin America, all officer candidates must be APHA members. The Nominating Committee's election slate for officers will be announced during the summer, after which members will have a chance to nominate by petition. The Governing Council will elect officers at APHA's 136th Annual Meeting in San Diego.

Full information on duties and responsibilities of elected APHA officers as well as nomination information can be accessed online at www.apha.org/about/ gov/nominations.
