Get Involved!

APAST provides opportunities for members to stay informed, get involved, and be active at a professional level that is different from the classroom. APAST offers recently selected PAs the opportunities to interact and network with PA alumni. At the same time, PA alumni get the opportunity to continue their professional growth by sharing their ideas and expertise. As members we can offer our own experiences as evidence of personal growth and develop a network of resources and remain life-long learners.
