About the Board

Every two years, APA Iowa members elect four individuals to serve as Chapter President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary.  These individuals, as well as the Past President, serve for two year terms.  The current term is from January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2019. Other members of the APA Iowa Board of Directors are appointed to four-year terms by the Chapter President with the exception of the non-voting representatives, who are selected by their respective organizations.
