ALA and ALA-APA are separate, independent legal organizations. They are tied together by fully interlocked governing bodies. The governing body of the ALA-APA is the ALA-APA Council, whose members are those individuals concurrently serving on the ALA Council. Within the policies established by the ALA-APA Council, the ALA-APA is managed by the Board of Directors, whose members are those individuals concurrently serving on the ALA Executive Board.
