IA AAP Chapter Committees
Legislative Advocacy Committee
Chapter members who participate on the Iowa AAP Legislative Advocacy Committee work together on behalf of the chapter to promote efforts and initiatives that improve the health and well being of the children of Iowa, and their families and communities. Committee members closely monitor activity during each year's legislative session, but remain active throughout the year to help the chapter prioritize issues to support during the sessions.
Their goal: to promote engagement in advocacy on behalf of kids at the local, state and federal levels.
Appointment Policy – Advisory Councils and Committees
When Iowa AAP receives a request for a member to represent the chapter on a council or committee, we will announce the position to members by email and post it on the website. The announcement will include the description of the duties and the time commitment, the duration of the appointment, and the response time for members to indicate their interest (generally, at least one week, depending on the immediacy of the need).
Interested members should explain why they are interested and assure that they can meet the time commitment. If more than one person expresses interest in the position, the IA AAP Board of Directors will choose from among the qualified applicants. If there are no qualified applicants, the Board will appoint someone to fill the need. Representatives must be active members of the chapter to be considered, but they may join IA AAP at the time of application.
IA AAP welcomes all members to participate in chapter activities. If you would like to learn more about serving as a member of a council or committee, please contact us.
