Chapter Committees

New York Chapter 2 of the AAP is governed by the Board of Directors and the Executive Officers.  The Board of Directors meets at least 4 times per year to conduct the business of the chapter.  The chapter committees meet at the discretion of the committee chairperson.

 In this section of our Web Site we publish news of the various committees of the Chapter. If the committee has a dedicated page, minutes can be found on the page.
