APBP Committees
Share |

APBP has several standing committees that support the Association in its programs and activities outlined in the strategic plan.

Alliances Committee
The Alliances Committee oversees APBP’s outreach and partnership services work.  This empowers APBP to connect and collaborate with like-minded professional associations, coalitions, advocacy organizations and government agencies. APBP participates in related conferences to make connections with individuals and other organizations. The Alliances Committee interfaces with the President of the Board of Directors, the Executive Director, and the liaisons to many professional associations, coalitions, advocacy groups and conferences. Relationships have been established with many key groups.  

Communication Committee
The Communication Committee coordinates APBP’s public relations effort consistent with the goals set in the strategic plan.  This encompasses This Week  at APBP, press releases, annual meeting communications, social media, and any other opportunity for forwarding APBP’s mission. The committee focuses on communications both to outside entities as well as to members.

Finance Committee
The Finance Committee is composed of the Treasurer (Committee Chair), President or Vice President, Executive Director, and two to three general members.  The Finance Committee’s central function is to help ensure proper management and oversight of APBP’s finances.

Membership Committee
The Membership Committee seeks to grow membership and increase the value of the organization for current members. The committee seeks to help members advance their careers and professional relationships and supports the new mentor program, Young Professionals group, chapters and networking among members.

Nominating Committee
The Nominating Committee prepares and presents a slate of candidates for the APBP Board of Directors on an annual basis. The committee is designated by the President with the approval of the Board of Directors.  It is normally be comprised of three members – the Vice President, another Board member, and an APBP member.  The Executive Director and other APBP staff may serve in an advisory capacity as non-voting members. The Committee works closely with headquarters on data collecting, call for nominations, and tallying of election results.

Conference Planning Committee
The Conference Planning Committee works with staff to plan the biannual conference.  The committee is composed of a Chair, Track Chairs, Local Host Committee, additional planning team members, APBP President or Vice President, and a planning committee member from previous conference.

Awards Selection Panel
The Awards Selection Panel includes a chair (heretofore a board member) and other members chosen by the chair.  Members should be chosen based on geographic diversity, credibility as professionals, range of professional experience, and active involvement in APBP. In the past, a 3-member panel has been selected and is recommended; a larger group will have more difficulty coming to a decision. At least one board member and at least one person who has served on a past selection panel should be included (these can be the same person or different people). Be sure to have an odd number of people in case a tiebreaker vote is needed.

Future webinar topics are determined by the Webinarios each year.  The Webinarios seek input from members via email, listserv as well as in person at APBP Conferences and other industry events. Once 12 topics are determined for the upcoming year, a formal request for proposals is distributed to acquire presenters for each webinar. The Webinarios review all proposals for presenters and finalize panels for each webinar.
