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).

Since 2013, APPAM's individual members elect three new people to the Council each year while APPAM's institutional members elect one person to serve on the Council. To read about the roles and disciplines of these individuals, please visit the Bylaws page of this site.

The Policy Council is responsible for setting policy and strategy for the association. Between meetings of the Policy Council, the Executive Committee (the officers, the executive director, and the editor of JPAM) is authorized to make tactical and implementation decisions for APPAM.
