The world around us is recognizing the critical role of Certified PAs and the ways in which they can positively impact health and the delivery of health care throughout all medical and surgical specialties and in all practice settings.

We are seeking two physician assistant directors at large to begin in 2021. Board members are elected for a four-year term and are eligible for re-election for a second four-year term.

The NCCPA Board meets in person four times a year and provides strategic direction and oversight for the organization in fulfillment of directors’ fiduciary obligations to NCCPA, working closely with the president/CEO. Board members typically also serve on two or three committees or task forces in any given year, which generally conduct their work via conference call, email and/or at committee meetings scheduled during weekends when the Board is already convened.

While members of our volunteer Board of Directors do not receive any remuneration for their service, NCCPA does cover all travel expenses, lodging and meals for meetings of the Board and committees.

The following pages include some important information on qualifications of board members, application requirements and notification information. The application begins on page 11.
