AjPHA Youth Directors Named for 2017-18

Meet the amazing Youth elected to serve as AjPHA national directors. These dedicated individuals represent AjPHA’s 14 zones and every member residing within them.

Serving as a director is a fun but serious task. Their responsibilities include directing association business, voting on by-law changes and providing valuable input about ways to grow AjPHA and attract new Youth to the program. These Youth directors are invited to cast their votes online June 23–July 9 for the AjPHA Executive Committee; the results will be announced the week of July 10. National directors meet annually at the AjPHA National Convention, which takes place in conjunction with the AjPHA World Championship Show. This year, the National Convention is June 28 at the West Sale Arena.
