Official APHA Rule Book

The postmark deadline for submission of proposed Rule Book Revisions is found in the front of the Rule Book in the Deadlines and Tentative Meetings Schedule.  Rule Book Revisions must be submitted electronically in a word document to Allyson Pennington, Staff Liaison for the Rules Advisory Committee at allysonp@apha.com.   All Rule Book Revision proposals will be reviewed by the Rules Advisory Committee, the Board of Directors and all appropriate Advisory Committees.  Rule Book Revision proposals will be voted on during the Board of Directors Meeting at the APHA Convention.
