MEMORANDUM

To: APRIL Members
From: APRIL Nominating Committee
Re: Serving as an Officer or Director on APRIL’s Board

This information is provided so that candidates are aware of the level of commitment required if elected.

There are two (2) in-person board meetings each year: one in the spring and one in the fall that occurs in conjunction with the national conference. The spring meeting is usually held in the city designated as the site for the following year’s national conference. At least two (2) additional meetings are conducted by teleconference. The spring and fall board meetings last 2½ days. In addition, every board member is expected to actively participate on at least one committee.

Board members and officers, or their Center for Independent Living or SILC, must cover all their travel costs including airfare, hotel and meals. APRIL does not reimburse these expenses. APRIL does provide breakfast and lunch during in person board meetings.

If you need more information, please contact the APRIL office at 501-753-3400.
