APRO Committees

The APRO Board of Directors is a talented team with committees headed by top-notch leaders, but the association is urging committee participation of other members – beyond the board – to tackle industry issues.

Here’s a list of current committees, each committee chair’s contact information, and participating APRO committee members. We encourage you to contact committee chairs, get involved in one or more committees, and help shape the future of rent-to-own!
