About APRA

Connections Editorial Advisory Committee

The Connections Editorial Advisory Committee focuses on Connections, Apra's bi-monthly e-newsletter. The committee is comprised of volunteers who can speak to current trends and issues, recruit top-notch content, and help ensure the quality of all published material. The EAC makes recommendations and provides input to the Chair. The Chair and/or Connections Board Liaison are responsible for making recommendations to the Apra Board, with input from the Apra Executive Director.
