Volunteer Opportunities

PAEA has several open volunteer opportunities. Interested individuals are asked to apply by October 30, 2020.

Mission Advancement Commissions

The Mission Advancement Commissions (MACs) advise the PAEA Board of Directors on strategic issues related to their mission area. Each year, the MACs work in partnership with the Board of Directors to develop areas of focus for the year. MACs are responsible for making strategic recommendations related to mission critical areas, providing regular mission-area updates, and keeping PAEA leadership apprised of important developments.

Meeting Commitments: Each group will be funded for one in-person meeting annually. Members will also participate in regular conference calls as needed to accomplish their work.

Steering Committees, Review Committees, and Boards

The steering committees and boards (i.e., steering groups) are functional groups providing guidance, advice, recommendations, and insights from the PA education community on a specific area, project, or initiative. The work of these groups contributes directly to the ongoing work of PAEA, manifested in specific products, services, and activities.

Meeting Commitments

Each group will be funded for one in-person meeting annually. Members will also participate in regular conference calls, as scheduled. See position descriptions below for additional commitments.

Terms of Service

Members of all steering committees and boards are eligible to serve two two-year terms from January 1 to December 31. Members must have chair support to continue into their second two-year term. See term exceptions below for the Future Educator Development Steering Committee; Exam Development Boards; and the Government Relations Steering Committee. Chairs for steering committees and boards serve a three-year term, with the option to serve an additional term for a maximum of two years.

Journal of Physician Assistant Education

JPAE is a quarterly, peer-reviewed publication dedicated to advancing PA education by publishing scholarly manuscripts germane to PA educators and providing a forum for the sharing of ideas and innovations that will enhance the education of PA students.
