Council of Affiliates is Looking for Volunteers

Are you a policy wonk? Do you love all things policy related? Have we got an opportunity for you!

The Council of Affiliates (CoA) is looking for volunteers to review APHA’s proposed policy statements. The purpose of the review is to consider how useful the proposed policies will be to Affiliates and/or Affiliate members at the state/local level. Other individuals will review the policies through a scientific/subject matter expertise lens.

For those who are interested in reviewing, more details are below:

  • Eligibility: To review, you must be an Affiliate member.
  • Timeline: Policies will be sent to you between February 26-28, 2021 (with a review form). Completed reviews will be due March 19, 2021 so you will have ~3 weeks to review.
  • Number of policies/time commitment: The number of policies you will be asked to review will vary depending on how many proposals APHA receives and how many reviewers the CoA recruits but we will strive to send you a maximum of 3-5 proposals. This task should take less than 5 hours (and likely less time).

To volunteer, please send your name and email address to Moose Alperin (moose.alperin@emory.eduby February 19. You will get a confirmation email within 48 hours.
