The Nevada AAP is almost entirely run by members who volunteer their time and talents resulting in improved pediatric outcomes in Nevada and leadership experience for the volunteer. Serving on the Chapter Board may qualify AAP members for national leadership.
The Nevada AAP current Bylaws (complete document further on this page), state that the general management of the Nevada Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics shall be vested in a Executive Committee. The Executive Committee consists of the President, the Vice President, Immediate Past President, Secretary/Treasurer, and the Chapter Executive Director (ex-officio member).
For the 2021 - 2022 Executive Committee, our current Vice President Vanessa Slots, MD, FAAP will rise to the role of President and our current President Pam Greenspon, MD, FAAP, will serve as Immediate Past President.

In addition to these, Nevada AAP Chapter Members are invited to propose additional committees focused on a pediatric issue they are passionate about.
The Nevada AAP Executive Committee appoints Committee Directors based on Chapter goals and volunteer interest. No need to wait for our biennial elections; chapter members may apply to fill open Committee Director seats at any time by emailing a statement of interest to NevadaChapterAAP@gmail.com.
Current Board members are welcome to reapply for their current board seat or explore a new role that interests them. The new Executive Committee will confirm 2021/2022 board leadership roles after the new term begins on January 15, 2021.
