Council of Affiliates
To represent the interests of affiliated associations, the Executive Board usually appoints 10 members to this group as selected by, and from, a caucus of Affiliate representatives to the Governing Council from the geographic area of each DHHS region. Six additional members are appointed to represent other APHA perspectives important to APHA-Affiliate relationships, however, up to three of those six at-large positions may be filled with Council of Affiliates leadership. There is one representative from the Student Assembly. The CoA elects members to the Executive Committee.
The CoA holds monthly conference calls, a mid-year meeting for which meeting expenses are reimbursed, and a meeting during the APHA Annual Meeting for which expenses are not covered. The term for at-large positions on the CoA is one year, while regional representatives may serve two-year terms. Additionally, regional representatives must be a member of APHA and their Affiliate.
