Any Fellow of the AAP may nominate a Fellow, or themselves, for a National Committee chairperson or member position. Committee appointments are made on the basis of knowledge, expertise, and the documented needs of the Committee. Within this context, Academy membership demographics such as professional activity, gender, ethnicity, and geographical distribution will be considered, as well as chapter activity.
Detailed information regarding the call for chairperson and member nominations may be found on the Lead @ AAP Web site (member
login required). The list of vacancies, Committee needs and term
rosters, as well as the fact sheet and biosketch templates, are
available at this website.
The Committee needs, as determined by the current Committee, are crucial in the Committee appointment process as the AAP Board of Directors carefully considers these needs when reviewing nomination materials and making appointments.
Committee chairpersons are appointed and reappointed annually for a maximum of four 1-year terms. Committee members are appointed and reappointed biennially for a maximum of three 2-year terms.
