PAST PRESIDENTS OF PAHA

We are grateful for the services of the following scholars who were PAHA's Presidents. Since 1987, PAHA Presidents have served for two years, after a two-year term of the First Vice President that allowed them to familiarize themselves with the management of the association. Following the time in office, Past Presidents have continued to serve on the Council for another two-year period. The terms of office end at the Annual Meeting of the association held in early January following the second year of service. For example, the term 2015-2016 ends in early January 2017 at PAHA's 74th Annual Meeting.
