The American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) yesterday announced a structural overhaul of its governance policies and board of directors.
As part of the restructuring, AAPA members voted to reduce the 45-member board to 11 members, extend member terms to two years and eliminate the board’s 12-member executive committee.
“By restructuring and modernizing AAPA’s Board of Directors, I believe it’ll vastly improve the association’s ability with regard to policymaking and other governance issues, enabling us to be more nimble, efficient and effective as a hemispheric membership association,” said AAPA President and Chief Executive Officer Christopher Connor in a press release.
AAPA also restricted the number of positions available to board members and will require that only port CEOs or their equivalent be eligible to serve on the board.
