APPAM Policy Council
The Policy Council is the Association's leadership team. It currently consists of four elected cohorts serving staggered, four-year terms of office; the APPAM officers (ex officio voting); the APPAM executive director and the editor of JPAM (ex-officio non-voting). At least two of the persons elected in each cohort must be practitioners.
Since 2005, APPAM's individual members elect seven new persons to the Council each year while APPAM's institutional members elect a total of four persons to serve on the Council. The Policy Council is responsible for setting policy and strategy for the association.
