 The APHE Board of Directors are actively looking for passionate, inspired and change-making members interested in shaping the future of APHE!  The term for members running this year would be 2019-2022.  The final year of your office would end at the 2022 APHE National Humane Education Conference.

At time of application, applicants and nominees must:

  • Be an APHE member in good standing for 1 year;
  • Have attended at least one APHE National Humane Education Conference; and
  • Have at least one year of experience, either in a paid or volunteer position, in humane education or related field


Those elected to the Board are required to attend the in-person board meetings on January 14th & 15th, 2019 before the National Humane Education Conference January 16th-18th in Phoenix, AZ.   Also required, is participation in one other in-person board meeting and two board phone conferences during each calendar year, as well as committee work throughout the year, primarily via e-mail.

If elected, applicants and nominees must be prepared to travel twice a year to different locations for meetings. This requires that board applicants and nominees have the support of their executive director and/or their board of directors, since this commitment will require time away from work, travel costs and availability to participate in conference calls. Limited funds may be available to assist with some travel costs.


The APHE Board of Directors requests that each applicant submit a resume, a current photo, and cover letter.  Within your submission, please include answers to the following questions:

1.      Why do you wish to serve on this board?

2.      What abilities do you have that you feel would be an asset to the organization?

3.      How will your experiences in the field help you to be a quality board member?

4.      Tell us about your work history in this field.

Complete applicant submissions must be received by the APHE Nominating Committee at by OCTOBER 12, 2018.

 ***Due to our use of an online voting procedure, nominees are required to provide all necessary information which will be posted on the APHE website, allowing members to get to know and ask questions of each candidate. ***

We invite enthusiastic members looking to build their resume, meaningfully contribute to the future direction of APHE, and willing to be a leader for our membership to join our exceptional Board of Directors!  Positions are challenging, engaging and assist our membership with augmenting their skills base.  Interested?
