National Advisory Board

In a constantly changing world that presents both challenges and opportunities APAN places a strong emphasis in developing initiatives that will best serve the professional and business community.

We achieve this by providing leading programs that support skin and age-management professionals in three key areas:

  • Evidence-based Education
  • Regulatory compliance and best-practice standards
  • New advances in technologies and techniques
  • Leading business strategies that support growth in a highly competitive market.

The role of the APAN NATIONAL ADVISORY COUNCIL (NAC) is to review these initiatives and provide collective counsel based on their wisdom, experience and knowledge. 

Members of this Council are selected based on both their accomplishments, as well as their personal integrity as these must be aligned with APAN’s values and ethics.

In 2023 we are expanding our NAC to include experts in two separate divisions:


We are delighted to introduce our existing and new NAC members as follows:
