2018 Advisory Councils

On the heels of our largest, most successful year, we are already deep in planning for 2018. Each year, we also build two Advisory Councils – one each for the APC and the Executive Assistants’ Summit – because it’s important that we incorporate the feedback, knowledge, and support of the community we serve! We have an important vision for our 2018 Advisory Council members with the potential for increased impact and participation.

We have already had overwhelming interest for spots on a Council, but we only have a few open positions on each council for this cycle. Please make sure to fully review the requirements, and take your time to answer each question. Please review the guidelines below. If you cannot attend the 2018 conference, participate fully throughout the planning cycle, or fill out the application fully, we ask that you do not apply.
