APIC is governed by an elected board of directors composed of four officers, the immediate past-president, no less than nine and no more than 12 directors.

The executive committee includes the president who serves as chair, the president-elect, the immediate past president, the treasurer, the secretary and one at-large board member. The chief executive officer serves as an ex-officio member of the board of directors and the executive committee.

  • The board is responsible for positioning the association to best serve APIC members as well as maintaining the focus and vision to improve the practice and management of infection prevention.
  • The board establishes policy; directs the activities of the elected officials, committees, and chief executive officer; oversees APIC’s finances; and charters chapters.
