APSA Ad Hoc Committee on
Policies and Procedures
APSA is dedicated to the continued
evaluation and review of existing policies and procedures regarding
professional misconduct and harassment. To that end, last spring, Rogers Smith,
the immediate past APSA president appointed an Ad Hoc Committee on Policies and
Procedures that will review APSA’s current policies and consider
recommendations to the APSA Council for revisions and additions to these
policies, especially as it pertains to professional misconduct. This committee
is chaired by council member Colleen Shogan. We welcome your feedback and
suggestions regarding the work of this committee, which can be provided to the
committee by emailing any one of us by email or via the
[email protected] email address. Read more.
