Leadership

The ABPANC Leadership Team

ABPANC is governed by a dedicated and experienced group of volunteer leaders, most of whom are certified, registered nurses. Two members of the board serve as Public Members. There are also two ex-officio board members — the ASPAN President and ABPANC Chief Executive Officer.

A professional staff provides the day-to-day oversight to carry out the organization’s mission and vision, as established by the ABPANC Board of Directors.
