CA PA|PG|PC’s Executive Board guides the association in its mission to serve our members in California’s 58 counties. The Board is composed of 9 annually elected officers, with two seated past presidents to provide historical information to assist new leadership. A full outline of Officer roles and Board Committees can be found in the Association’s Bylaws.

Members interested in serving on the Board can download our Members in Action: Board Membership (coming soon) to learn about the Board, commitment required and next steps to get involved.

The Executive Board meeting schedule can be found on the Calendar of Events. If you wish to participate in a Board meeting, please contact the Executive Director at shughes@capapgpc.org.
