APHNYS has broken the state into twelve regions based on population and geographic boundaries.
APHNYS Regions Map
These regions each have a regional coordinator and deputy coordinator whose responsibilities are to provide at least one meeting in the fall of each year. These meetings are to allow historians to learn, network and grow in their abilities as historians. Often these are the only meetings some historians can financially attend. Training can take many forms, and regional meetings will continue to play a vital part of the APHNYS system.
