It is expected that elected APTA CVP leaders will not be restricted by their employment responsibilities from attending, and be willing to attend, Academy Board and Business meetings when required by their leadership roles. The BOD has a standing virtual meeting the 4th Tuesday of each of most months at 7:00pm Eastern time; with in-person Business meeting held annually at each year’s APTA Combined Sections Meeting. We are also asking the President-Elect to attend our Strategic Planning Meetings this fall, including an in-person meeting on Friday, Sept 20th immediately preceding the 2024 Academy Fall Conference in Atlanta.  Please plan to attend this meeting if you are nominating yourself for President.  Additionally, the Chief Delegate and President (2nd Delegate) are expected to attend all in-person and virtual meetings related to the APTA House of Delegates.
