2017 APPAM Regional Student Conferences

APPAM will host two regional student conferences in 2017. The DC Regional Student Conference will be held on April 7th - 8th, 2016 at George Mason University in Arlington, VA. The California Regional Student Conference will be held on April 9th - 10th at the University of California Riverside in Riverside, CA. During these conferences, students will present research across a wide variety of policy areas, through poster sessions and on conference panels with their peers.


APPAM Leadership and Policy Council Election Update

The Annual Membership Meeting, held at the 2016 APPAM Fall Conference, included the presentation of the slate of nominees for the APPAM Policy Council, the President-Elect, the Vice President and the Treasurer of APPAM.

For contested positions, APPAM members will receive ballots and voting instructions by December 15. Nominee headshots and bios will be made available at that time. Electronic voting will continue for 30 days from the time the ballots are sent out; once the votes are counted, the winners automatically become members of the Policy Council and, if applicable, the Executive Committee.

The ballots will also contain information on an update to the bylaws and members will have an opportunity to vote on that as well.

Congratulations to David Johnson, University of Michigan, for becoming the next President-Elect of APPAM! He will succeed Carolyn Heinrich, Vanderbilt University, who will become the President of APPAM and Ron Haskins, Brookings Institution, will become the Past President.

For more information on the rules governing elections, please refer to the APPAM Bylaws.

(In addition to being members of the Policy Council, officers are also members of the Executive Committee)
