Minority and Underrepresented (M/UR) Caucuses
APA members may join Minority and Underrepresented (M/UR) Caucuses by updating caucus memberships in the member dashboard. The M/UR caucuses provide a networking opportunity and foster communication among members who share interests. There are caucuses for the following groups:
- American Indian/Alaska Native/Native Hawaiian
- International Medical Graduates
Join M/UR Caucuses
To join, visit your member profile to update your caucus membership and submit.
Membership in a caucus is free and is reserved for APA members. A member may enroll in more than one M/UR caucus but may vote and/or hold elected office only in one M/UR caucus.
Participation in a caucus is a pathway to: exploring concerns about professional growth and advancement; identifying, supporting, and electing top-notch M/URs for leadership posts; networking with members with shared backgrounds; advocating for minority patient populations; talking about key issue facing APA; initiating mentoring relationships; bringing concerns to APA leadership; and assuming leadership roles in APA.
Each M/UR caucus elects two representatives to the APA Assembly — a representative and a deputy representative. They have the same privileges and voting rights as APA district branch representatives.
