Most of AAPAAN’s activities take place within our committees. You are welcome to join a committee, even if you are not on the AAPAAN Council! Take a look at our committees and their responsibilities, and please contact the committee chair to see how you can get involved.
The Programs committee focuses on building the AAPAAN network, including development of local chapter development. They work with local contacts on developing regional events and a membership base.
The Communications Committee works with faculty, staff and students to inform the public and media about programs, initiatives, and other activities occurring with the organization. The Communications Committee produces external communications (blog, social media posts and articles), as well as update multimedia assets.
