How to Join the Committee on Membership

The Committee on Membership consists of one representative from each Section and Affiliate Association. The Committee's chief purpose is to assist APHA in organizing Association membership promotions. The Committee encourages membership by:

  • Promoting membership through Sections; and
  • Promoting joint APHA-Affiliate Association membership

All Sections are required to have one representative on the Committee on Membership. Affiliates are also invited to nominate one of their members to serve on the Committee. In order for an Affiliate representative to be eligible to serve, he or she must be a member of both the Affiliate association and APHA.

APHA Affiliate Affairs and the Committee on Affiliates encourage Affiliates to nominate members for the Committee on Membership to ensure that the voice of their Affiliate is heard by the Committee.
