 APHA Regional Clubs 

Use the Officer Update submission form for reporting your club officers to APHA by the deadline of January 1, 2018.  Even if your club has not held elections by that date you will need to submit your 2017 Officers and the date of your election. Receipt of the requirements to maintain your club charter is necessary to be considered for Gold Star Club or Clubs of Distinction awards for 2018.

BE OFFICIAL! Just a friendly reminder that if your club is not using the new APHA logo it is not using the association’s official branding. This change became effective well over a year ago so if you have not already, we strongly encourage you to replace any items containing the old APHA logo and begin using the new branding. The new logos as well as updated banner graphics are available for downloading on the Regional Club website here.
