Please click on an area for information on a specific regional organization.
Regional organizations are grass roots level support of AACAP initiatives; are responsible for support of local members and residents, advocacy for children's mental health issues; and liaison to the Assembly, especially the communication of local issues. The Assembly, which meets twice per year, is composed of delegates from all member regional organizations. The number of delegates is based on the size of the regional organization's membership: one delegate for every 50 members. Only members current with their dues are included and two resident members count as one member. The delegates from each regional organization are responsible for bringing important issues to the attention of the Assembly and for sharing the information received from the Assembly with their regional organizations. The Assembly's officers—Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary/Treasurer, and two Representatives to Council—are delegates elected by Assembly delegates and serve on Council concurrent with their term on the Assembly Executive Committee. They serve an executive function for the Assembly and are responsible for bringing important issues from the Assembly to the Council and vice versa.
