NATIONAL Board Positions
At Large Board Members and Regional Delegates
APSE has two categories of board members: At-Large Board Members, and Regional Delegates. Both categories are full voting members of the APSE National Board.
- At-Large Members: At-Large Board Members are elected by all APSE members who vote in the election. At-Large members represent the full membership. Two At-Large Board Members will be elected in this year’s election to three-year terms. Per APSE’s by-laws, no more than two elected at-large board members may be from one state.
- Regional Delegates: Regional Delegates serve directly on the National APSE Board as full board members, representing the needs of the chapters in their region, and serving as members of the Delegates Council (see attached job description). Regional Delegates are elected by the APSE members in their geographic regions. There are six geographic regions.
