Volunteer for AAPL’s Education Advisory Committee
The American Association of Private Lenders is recruiting members to serve on an Education Advisory Committee. The Committee is being established to help AAPL build its educational offerings and to assist in reinforcing the framework of common principles and standards of practice that all members have committed to – the AAPL Code of Ethics.
The first task of the inaugural committee will be to review and revise (if applicable) the AAPL Member Toolbox.
AAPL believes education is a never-ending process. It doesn’t stop after earning a degree or starting a career. Through professional educational opportunities, career-minded individuals can constantly improve their skills and become more proficient at their jobs. It is particularly important as members of AAPL in order to build trust and respect for the private lending professionals, and enforcing the Code of Ethics provides additional incentive for individuals to choose to do the right things.
The term of membership on the Committee is two years. However, should a member’s AAPL membership expire they automatically resign from the Committee. Another applicant will be appointed at AAPL management’s discretion to fill the remainder of the term.
AAPL Education Advisory Committee members may be re-appointed for one additional one-year term. However, in no instance will a committee member serve for more than four consecutive years.
Details about the practices and procedures can be found in the Practices and Procedures of the Education Advisory Committee.
