Executive Board

The Executive Board is currently composed of 15 members, of which 3 are elected at the General Assembly (President and two Vice-Presidents). The Executive Board, collectively, is the representative of the APC General Assembly. The Executive Board is responsible for setting the policies and for ensuring that the directions set by the membership at the General Assembly are implemented. It meets at least three times a year and meetings are chaired by the President.

The Executive Board is primarily responsible for the implementation of policies and directions set by the General Assembly. Additionally, the Executive Board provides recommendations on membership (conditions for membership and fees) to the General Assembly, including motions received from members. It is also responsible for approving budgets and audited accounts, rules and regulations, and any changes to the APC Constitution.

The Executive Board is elected every four years. The most recent elections took place in December 2014.
