Part of the process of writing a submission may involve consulting with relevant members. We consult as widely as possible and frequently speak to the APA groups to get a broad range of opinions and expert feedback.

We encourage all our members to join the APA groups and contribute to our work.

You can see the process of writing a submission here.
