Whether it’s committee work, association policy, leadership or participation in program activities, APHL members are very involved in the day-to-day workings of the association.

Get Involved with APHL

The experience, expertise and commitment of APHL members drive the association and accelerate progress in laboratory practice, systems and policy.

Committee Work

APHL committees are the engine of association programs, policies and activities—the conduit through which issues important to public health laboratories are identified, investigated and addressed.


APHL policy statements articulate positions on issues of laboratory science, practice and systems as well as larger issues affecting the public health of the nation.

APHL Representation 

APHL periodically seeks members to represent the association on external workgroups, advisory boards and in other capacities.
