    I found the information with the candidate bios on the ApHC website on the page related to the BOD.

    Now, with the upcoming elections, I have a suggestion..

    For the section of the magazine and the website for information about the ApHC Board of Directors, I can understand how it might be difficult to show all of the various countries on the map used as a graphic in the Journal and on the website; however, I would suggest that you add a list of the areas represented (probably just as they are listed in the bylaws) along with the map to help all members, including the international members, know who their representative is.

    If you click on the “About Us” button on the left side menu of then click on Board of Directors, the election info is there. If you click on a candidate name the photo and that person’s message should show up. Thanks.
