PAHPM Board/Officer Elections

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our PAHPM Board elections were delayed.

 It is now time for us to submit nominations and choose our Board leadership to help bring us through 2020 and into 2021.  As we often say, we are a small but mighty group of dedicated PAs who since our founding nearly 10yrs ago, has worked hard to bring recognition to the many PAs out there practicing in the fields of hospice and palliative medicine.  It has been through amazing leadership, partnership, collaboration, and creativity that PAHPM Board members have grown our group.  No one person has brought us to where we are today--it truly takes a village.

Each member is important to this organization and contributes in their own special way.  Please consider stepping up and offering your talent, leadership, and knowledge in this field by nominating yourself or others to the the PAHPM Board.  Below are brief descriptions of the positions open this year: President-Elect, Student Representative, Members at Large (2), and AAPA Delegate for HOD.

Know that you're never alone, we all truly work together and help each other out. So don't be shy!  This is a great way to build your CV and leadership skills while contributing to your field and sharing your own unique ideas to PAHPM.

Open Positions:

  • President-Elect (1)
  • Members-at-Large (2)
  • AAPA HOD Delegate (1)

Log-in and visit our PAHPM Election Page for full details and a link to the nomination form--put in your own name, and/or nominate another member!  Keep our mighty group going!
