The AAP National Conference & Exhibition Planning Group consists of a cross section of over 25 practicing pediatricians, medical and surgical pediatric subspecialists. This group works together to review and accept over 350 sessions in over 70 topic areas that comprise the conference program.

In the complex planning of this activity, the committee makeup is representative of general pediatricians in practice and academic contexts as well as all the major subspecialty groups. It is the expertise of the diverse members of this planning group that ensures the scope of practice is being met at the conference. For questions or to connect with a planning group member please contact
