External directors to the APIC Board ideally are drawn from the broader healthcare community and will be able to bring complementary knowledge and skill as well as new relationships to APIC that could positively contribute to the association's development. External directors are envisioned as individuals who are in a position to influence the course of infection prevention and control; create new stakeholder relationships; and/or bring a more diverse set of skills in business, finance, leadership, and strategy. While they need not have substantive expertise in infection prevention and control, they must demonstrate a strong interest in advancing the practice and profession.
