About APC governance

The APC Board of Directors is elected from among the members of the APC Council, on which all APC member organisations are represented. Except for those reserved specifically for the APC Council, the Board of Directors oversees and exercises all governance powers and activities of the organisation.

The Board makes strategic decisions about APC membership and key partnerships, and plays a central role in defining APC’s strategic priorities. The APC Board often deals with challenging institutional issues and these require strong commitment and a willingness to sacrifice time for the network.
