Member Networking

Member Council Gatherings

aapmr_mc_horiz_cmykMember Councils are the pathway to transforming your Academy membership into a more powerful resource in the areas of education, research, and advocacy. The Member Council Gatherings are designed to help YOU connect with your peers. Through your Member Councils, you can interact with other Academy members who share your clinical interests, provide input directly to Academy leadership on everything from educational content to legislation, and receive tailored resources relevant to your practice. You also receive a quarterly enewsletter developed by your peers by participating in the Councils that align with your clinical area.

Ernest N. Morial Convention Center

Are you interested in bringing your social or clinically-specialized community group together at the Annual Assembly? Then take advantage of our Community Network Lounge!

This dedicated space is the perfect place to hold an impromptu meeting or a host a more private gathering (reserved by appointment). The Lounge will be split into 2 sections this year—one location for attendees to come and go as please and to hold impromptu meetings; the other space to reserve specific appointment times for more private gatherings. 

Get your group together and meet face-to-face to ask advice, share your current situation, needs, and thoughts on topics surrounding your clinical interests. Contact if you’re interested in reserving space in the Community Network Lounge. Rooms will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Be sure to contact the Academy in advance if you are interested in hosting your group.
