About APRA

Nominations Committee

The Nominations Committee oversees the nominations and election process each year. The committee conducts candidate and reference interviews, and participates in thoughtful deliberations via scheduled committee meetings. Their goal is to ensure a slate of candidates for the Apra Board of Directors is presented to the membership for a vote. The Committee Chair oversees all activities of the committee and works with committee members to accomplish objectives as well as set and manage priorities, deadlines, and timelines related to the charge and responsibility of the committee.
