Voting & Policy Meetings

Two important meetings are held annually at the APPA National Conference: the Legislative and Resolutions Committee Meeting, and the Association Business Meeting. Each APPA utility member (including joint action agencies and state and regional associations) is eligible to designate one employee or governing board member to serve as the utility's voting delegate at each of these meetings. Your utility's voting delegate for the Association Business Meeting may be different than its voting delegate for the L&R Committee Meeting, or it may be the same person.

Voting delegates at APPA’s annual Business Meeting will elect members of the APPA board of directors, and discuss and vote on the policy resolutions adopted by the L&R Committee. These resolutions will guide APPA’s advocacy efforts for the coming year. The meeting will also feature reports from the board chair and treasurer. Each regular member of APPA member utility may designate one voting delegate for the business meeting.

Conference attendees should designate if they are representing their utility as the voting delegate or alternate when they register. If you have any questions, please contact Shelley Padilla at 202/467-2902 or
