The Association defines a Caucus as a group of at least 15 APHA members or partisans of a particular position on an issue important to APHA, who pursue a desired result within the Association.  A Caucus is considered to be “in official relations” with APHA, rather than a regular component of the Association. 

The Association has two types of Caucuses that allow members to coalesce around (1) shared characteristics that cannot be changed (i.e., ethnicity/race, gender, sexual orientation) and (2) special interests, worksite issues, and social justice issues.
