AANP Board of Directors

Meet Your Elected Leadership

AANP is governed by a board of directors comprised of volunteer NP members—four officers and 11 regional directors elected by AANP members. Elections are held annually, and elected board members may not serve more than three consecutive terms in the same position. AANP’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) also serves as a non-voting member of the board.
