AAP Councils and Sections are a great way to get involved at the National level! In 2015 there will be more than 100 vacancies to fill on the council and section executive committees. An executive committee is the leadership body comprised of a chairperson and executive committee members. Here are brief descriptions of councils and sections: http://www.aap.org/sections
Nominations are being accepted through December 15, 2014 via SurveyMonkey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2015CouncilSectionVacancies
Interested candidates are asked to self-nominate. All nominees must be current members in good standing of the national AAP and the specific council/section for which they are nominated. Candidate information will be shared with the nominations committees for each Council or Section, who will weigh in on the nominations received and make their decision by mid-January. Elections are conducted in March.
