If you have a question or concern that you would like to present to the APA’s Board of Directors during one of their monthly meetings, please submit your question/concern, via e-mail, to: (the subject line must say “Board Meeting Question”). Your e-mail will be read and discussed/answered during their usual “Courtesy of the Floor” segment.
