  How Does the Organization Function?
District VIII is governed by an elected Section Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer together with appointed representatives from each of 14 western states and Canadian provinces. Any health care professional may become a member, get involved, and enjoy opportunities for learning, making new friends, and exchanging information.

Note: Membership in the AAP or Perinatal Section is not required to belong to District VIII. Also, paying dues to the AAP and Perinatal Section does not extend membership to District VIII.
