AAPA’s executive vice president and general counsel, Jean Godwin, indicated earlier this year her intention to reduce her role in 2019. The promotion of Long and Martino are part of the association’s long-term succession plan. 

“Jean will continue to serve as the association’s general counsel, while our outreach and membership services department that she has led will be separated into two departments: external affairs and member engagement,” said Kurt Nagle, AAPA president and ceo.
