Members of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) are a crucial component of the organization’s leadership. We rely on the experience and expertise of NP leaders to guide the association and advance the NP role.
AANP’s board of directors (BOD) is comprised of the Chief Executive Officer (non-voting member) and NPs who are elected by association members. In addition to the four officers and 11 regional directors who serve on the BOD, eligible AANP members also have the opportunity to vote for their state representatives and members of the AANP Nomination Council.
