Academy Governance

The American Academy of Health Behavior Governance consists of an Executive Board comprised of the President, President-Elect, Past President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Executive Director; and a Board of Directors comprised of the Executive Board Members plus 3 Member Delegates, 6 Council Chairs (Membership Development Council, Professional Development and Mentoring Council, Resource Development Council, Awards Council, Diversity Equity Council and 5 Committees (Nominating, Strategic Planning, Past Presidents, Conference Planning, Future Conference Planning).  The Councils and Committees recommend program directions and policies to the Board for action.

We encourage all AAHB members to take an active role in the governance of the organization by reading the AAHB bylaws and policies, by reading the monthly reports emailed by the Member Delegates, by joining a Council of interest, and by attending the Open Business Meeting at the Annual Scientific Meeting!

AAHB Board members are responsible for their own registration, travel and hotel expenses for the Annual and Mid-Year board meetings.  A light breakfast and dinner are provided during the mid-year meeting and a light breakfast and lunch are provided for the Annual meeting.

Find out more about AAHB future directions by reading the Strategic Plan.
