Board of Directors

2014-2015 Officers

The NYAPRS Board of Directors is made up of providers and peers from all over the state and all walks of life. The Board provides support to NYAPRS' mission of recovery, rehabilitation, and rights by lending their expertise to the work of our Divisions, and to our administrative operations such as membership and fund development. Our Regional Coordinators provide on the ground support to our advocacy work as well as opportunities for local communities to participate in forums and trainings on the latest policy and practice trends. The Board Committees organize and guide NYAPRS activities around areas key to our internal operations as well as to our membership and mission.
