Friday, April 01, 2011 Now Available: 2011-2012 Board-appointed Groups and 2011 Appointments Process The list of 2011-2012 Board-appointed Groups and the 2011 appointment process for Board-appointed groups now are available. The Board of Directors (Board) gratefully acknowledges the work done by all of the members of volunteer groups to-date, and has directed that careful steps be taken to ensure that continuity of work is maintained during this time of transition. The new volunteer group structure offers 3 channels—Board-appointed committees and task forces and staff-selected workgroups, to engage members in accomplishing important work on behalf of the association. The Board is confident that these channels will support an effective partnership among the Board, staff, and membership to accomplish all of the work that is needed to achieve APTA’s strategic plan and operational priorities. Questions regarding APTA’s volunteer group system may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
