​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Board is the association’s public face, representing members in matters of policy, laboratory practice and collaboration with health partners in the public and private sectors.

As the governing body of the association, the APHL Board of Directors establishes the strategic direction and priority initiatives of the organization and ensures that annual goals are met.

The Board of Directors is comprised of the president, president-elect, secretary-treasurer, immediate past president, two public health local institutional member representatives, a public health associate institutional member representative and three elected members-at-large. The president serves as chairperson of the Board of Directors, and the executive director is an ex-officio member.

The board meets monthly by conference call and quarterly in person. It manages the association’s strategic planning process and provides financial oversight for the organization. Its meeting schedule is public, and any member may request to be included on the agenda at any time.
