Qualifications for NYSSPA Office


The following positions are available for the

2018-2019 Elections Cycle:


President-Elect (3-year commitment: president-elect, president, immediate past-president)


Vice President / Chief Delegate to the AAPA

(1-year commitment)


Secretary (4-year commitment: secretary, president-elect, president, immediate past-president)


District C, D, and E Directors (2-year commitment)

2 Student Directors and 1 Alternate

(1-year commitment)


Approximately 11* House of Delegate Positions

(1-year commitment)

*The exact number of positions will be determined by AAPA apportionment.


Please note: for the 2018-2019 elections cycle ONLY, there will be a one-time President-Elect position, in addition to the Secretary position (which includes a four year succession from Secretary to President-Elect to President and then to Immediate Past-President). This is due to recent bylaw and policy changes adopted by the Board of Directors. Once the 2019-2020 application cycle begins, there will be no need for a President-Elect position, as the Secretary will advance to President-Elect in accordance to the succession of that position.
