ACPA has a proud tradition of advocating for and advancing the voices of all of members of our profession. As the Coordinator of Standing Committees, I am proud to represent this coalition of groups that are at the forefront of issues of inclusion and social justice. The Standing Committees are unique entities in that they represent and act as advocates for the social identities of the ACPA membership. Unlike the ACPA’s Commissions, which represent what we do, the Standing Committees represent who we are. They provide mentoring opportunities, promote relevant scholarship, produce publications, and sponsor programs and socials during the Annual Convention.
There are many ways for all levels of professionals to get involved in the standing committees. Please feel free to reach out to any of the leaders of these groups to find out how you can contribute.
