NAPA Members and the Navy PA Community: Due to a lack of command funding across the Navy for Navy PAs to attend the 2019 AAPA Annual Conference in Denver from May 18-22, NAPA will NOT to hold it’s annual NAPA meeting there this year, but will still hold a Navy PA and NAPA member social gathering during the AAPA Conference. The annual NAPA meeting will be moved to Portsmouth, VA this year to be held in conjunction with the NAPA East Symposium on October 16-17, 2019. An estimated 30 or more PAs will be in attendance. For those who cannot attend or are on the west coast we plan to broadcast the symposium via NAPA Facebook live video for all to tune in.  The date and time is still to be determined. Please stay tuned for specifics, once finalized we will be emailing our members, as well as posting for all to see on our NAPA website and NAPA Facebook page. Thank you.

NAPA Constitution and By-Laws Update


The NAPA Board of Directors recently met and voted to amend NAPA's Constitution and Bylaws, which were subsequently approved and adopted by the Board of Directors.

The most substantial change is to establish Regional Affiliates of NAPA:

  • NAPA East (covers locations associated with NAVMEDEAST)
  • NAPA West (covers locations associated with NAVMEDWEST)

The new By-Laws also establish the Leadership Positions for the Regional Affiliates of President, Vice-President, and Secretary (2 year terms).

Additional details and an organizational chart of NAPA leadership may be found here.

Additionally, this realignment provides room for Regional leadership expansion through Regional ad-hoc committees.

You may find a copy of NAPA's Constitution and By-Laws here.


NAPA has updated its organization to regionally align with Navy Medicine East and Navy Medicine West.

NAPA's regional affiliates, NAPA East and NAPA West, will correspond geographically to those commands. As such, NAPA members serving in Navy Medicine East commands will be affiliated with NAPA East and similarly those NAPA members serving in Navy Medicine West commands will be affiliated with NAPA West.
