Board of Directors


APSAC is now accepting nominations to serve on the 2015 Board of Directors. To qualify, individuals must be a member of APSAC at the time of their Board nomination and must remain a member throughout their 3 year term in office. To be nominated for the Board of Directors an individual must have been an active member of APSAC for at least four years preceding their nomination, and must submit a biography of 200 words or less stating their current professional achievements with an emphasis on the candidate's work on behalf of APSAC (e.g., presenting at Colloquiums, Clinics, other APSAC events; involvement with a State Chapter; Committee service; fund raising activities, prior Board service, etc.). The APSAC Nomination Committee shall review all candidate submissions and recommend the slate of candidates to the Board. Members will then vote to elect Board members.


If you are interested in nominating an individual to serve, please e-mail the individual's biography of 200 words or less to APSAC’s Executive Director, Michael Haney, Self-nominations will not be accepted. The deadline for submitting is February 1, 2015. Additional information is also available on the APSAC website by selecting this link.

A Board of Directors who serve for no more than two consecutive three-year terms guides APSAC. Care is taken to select Board members that represent the many disciplines, geographic regions, and cultures of our membership.
