Pictorial Directory of Leaders

One of APNA's core values is inclusivity. In order to promote and support diversity to ensure that our leadership reflects our membership, we are encouraging the leaders pictured below to reach out to the next generation of leaders. For many, their involvement was a response to a 'tap on the shoulder' from someone they respected that gave them the confidence to pursue a leadership position. If you would like to know what it's like to be an APNA leader, want tips about giving someone the 'tap on the shoulder', or just to say thank you, please use these links to contact them.
