NMAPA produces a conference every fall which offers about 18 hours of AAPA Category 1 CME. Our conference is known for providing diverse topics and excellent speakers. Members receive a significant discount. It is the one of the best, if not the best opportunity for PAs to network in our geographically large state.
Legislative Representation and Advocacy
NMAPA is the leading voice of PAs in New Mexico and works to promote the PA profession in our state. The Legislative Committee is active in reviewing legislative bills and policies. NMAPA also works closely with its legislative advocate on issues affecting PAs in New Mexico. Members receive an annual legislation report and the close of the legislative season.
NMAPA members are invited to play and active role in the future of the PA profession by engaging in leadership activities within NMAPA. Members are welcome to join any committee and run for positions on the Board of Directors.
NMAPA provides opportunities for prospective PA students to shadow a PA. Current students are warmly welcome to join NMAPA and take part in leadership roles within the academy; both PA schools are represented on the Board of Directors by students. Students also receive a special rate at the CME Fall Conference.
NMAPA posts a wide variety of PA job openings around the state on our website.
Newsletter and Email Alerts and Updates
The quarterly NMAPA newsletter provides interesting articles of both the professional and social type about happenings affecting PAs throughout New Mexico and is available to members only. Members also receive occasional emails with information that may be time sensitive.
The NMAPA website is the central location for everything affecting the organization. New members can use the website to join NMAPA and current members can renew their membership online. We hope to have a member's only page where members can update their information and network with other PA's.
