APHA President Visits to Affiliate Annual Meetings

Each year, the APHA president visits a specific set of State/Regional Affiliates. The schedule rotates every three years.

The APHA president visits are based on the president's term, which begins at the APHA Annual Meeting and ends at the following APHA Annual Meeting. For example, Ella Greene-Moton serves as APHA's president from November 2023 through November 2024. If the APHA president is unavailable for the specific dates the Affiliate requests, Affiliate Affairs staff will attempt to provide an alternate representative.

Questions? Please contact the Affiliate Affairs staff at affiliateaffairs@apha.org or 202-777-2428.

What are the APHA and Affiliates responsibilities? 

APHA provides: 

  • Information about membership and programs and APHA promotional items (will be mailed to the representative of the Affiliate's choice)
  • Air/train/car expenses for the APHA president to travel to the Affiliate's meeting location
  • President's food at airport 

Affiliate will provide:

  • Hotel accommodations, ground transportation once the APHA President arrives in-state (hotel accommodations will be prepaid by the Affiliate to avoid the APHA president incurring unnecessary personal expenses)
  • All meals for the APHA president while in the state for the visit

What is the timeline?

APHA will contact Affiliates in November to ask that they submit their APHA president visit requests. Affiliates must let Affiliate Affairs staff know if they want the APHA president to attend their meeting at least 2 months in advance of their meeting date. All pieces of travel must be booked and finalized 3 weeks before the meeting.
