Chapter Board

An Executive Board governs the chapter; four of the chapter board positions are elected every two years by the chapter membership (President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer).  The remaining chapter board members are appointed positions and include the Professional Development Officer and committee chairs.  The Executive Board meets monthly to handle chapter business, such as requests for certification maintenance credits, event planning, legislative priorities, etc.  Should you have any questions about the chapter executive board, please feel free to contact the President.

Other appointed positions that are filled as needed include:  Awards Chair, Elections Officer, and Conference Chair.  The awards chair is selected each year by the Chapter president to coordinate the current year’s awards program.   The elections officer is selected by the president every two years to manage the current election cycle.  The conference chair is selected by the President every three years when APA RI hosts the Southern New England Planning Conference.
