ACPA Commissions represent the job/functional areas or professional specializations in which ACPA members are employed or have an interest. Most Commissions offer electronic updates and newsletters, provide opportunities for educational programs and networking at the Annual Convention, and offer programs and services to members. Members can volunteer for activities, including leadership positions within the Commissions.
