Action Board

APHA’s Action Board helps coordinate the association’s grassroots and grasstops advocacy activities and improves participation in advocacy initiatives among the association’s Sections, SPIGS, Caucuses, state Affiliates and other units. Members of the Action Board serve for a three-year term and help engage the units they represent to take action on APHA’s advocacy priorities through action alerts and other advocacy campaigns. In carrying out its responsibilities, the Action Board collaborates with the leadership and membership of the association’s other units and its state Affiliates. In addition, the chair of the Action Board and three of his/her designees serve as members of the Joint Policy Committee — the association’s policy statement development body.
