Your Nominating Committee

The Nominating Committee prepares a slate of candidates to be elected for national office (Board of Directors and Nominating Committee) each year at the House of Delegates. Nominations for national office are submitted each fall by all APTA members.

If you or someone you know is interested in serving in a national office, contact any committee member or your component liaison, they will assist in fostering leadership potential throughout the year.
