AONP Board

AONP Executive Board

AONP is governed by an elected Board of Directors. Board members are elected by AONP members at our annual business meeting that takes place during the annual conference in October.  Board members bring a wealth of experience and leadership and we appreciate their willingness to serve and help continue our mission “to advance, support, and promote the high standards of health care delivered by nurse practitioners — to improving patient access to quality health care." 

Why serve?: Past board members have commented that their service on the AONP Executive Board was a rewarding experience. Leadership provides an opportunity to share professional skills and to serve on a mission of promoting the quality of care and professionalism of nurse practitioners practice. It is something they are dedicated to and feel passionately about. Serving on the executive board can perfect professional skills, such as public speaking, networking and leadership experience.
