The APA's central office is located a few blocks from the U.S. capitol. With nearly 500 employees, it provides staff for all boards and committees, operates a large publishing house, invests in stocks, manages real estate, and interacts with private, state, and federal agencies and organizations. In addition to annual revenues of $12 million in member dues and fees and $11 million from publications, it generates additional income of almost $15 million. General dues represent only 18% of the revenues needed to run the APA.
The executive vice president and CEO is responsible for the management and staffing of the central office and for running the business aspects of the APA. The Board oversees the work of the CEO and annually evaluates his or her performance.
