Action Board

APHA’s Action Board helps coordinate the association’s grassroots and grasstops advocacy activities and encourages participation in advocacy initiatives among the association’s Sections, SPIGs, Caucuses, state and regional Affiliates and other member 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. In addition, the Chair and Chair-designate of the Action Board and two additional members selected by the chair serve as members of the Joint Policy Committee — the association’s policy statement development body.
