Legislative Representation and Advocacy
ASAPA’s Legislative Committee and its Board of Directors provide effective representation to the State Legislature, ARBoPA, health professionals and to the AAPA. As a constituent organization of AAPA, we utilize the collective expertise of the AAPA staff and their resources to promote PAs as an integral part of the health care team in Arizona. Additionally, your membership dollars help to pay a legislative lobbyist to keep our organization on top of legislative issues that affect us all.
ASAPA is an energetic organization. You can choose to receive all of the information and participate when you can, or you can choose to become an active, working member of a committee or of the Board of Directors. There are numerous leadership opportunities; you are encouraged to become actively engaged in the future of PAs in the state of Arizona and across the nation.
ASAPA emphasizes support for both PA and Pre-PA students. ASAPA provides opportunities for prospective PA students to shadow a PA and reduced fees at CME conferences. Current students are provided reduced conference fees, free ASAPA membership (if members of SAAAPA) and scholarships. We warmly encourage students to join ASAPA and take part in leadership roles within the organization. Students represent all Arizona PA programs on the Board of Directors.
