Board of Directors
AMAPCEO has two principal governing bodies to which members elect representatives: the Board of Directors and an Annual Delegates' Conference (ADC).
The Board is responsible for: preparing policies for consideration by the ADC, implementing the decisions of governance bodies, spending funds in accordance with the annual budget, interpreting the AMAPCEO Constitution, and managing the bargaining process for the OPS unit and, generally, for exercising authority not specifically assigned to the Delegates, to whom the Board is accountable for its actions.
The Board of Directors consists of:
- Eleven District Directors, each directly elected by and representing one of AMAPCEO's geographic districts; and
- Four Executive Officers, who together form the Executive Committee: the President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer, each elected at the ADC.
