The National Alliance of Professional Psychology Providers Executive Board is the policy setting and administrative board of the organization. All NAPPP board members are not paid for their services as these are volunteer positions. Service to NAPPP is looked at as service to the profession. NAPPP directors want their unpaid service to be a model for other psychologists and associations who typically will utilize a high percentage of member funds for paid salaries. All member related services utilized by NAPPP are performed by independent contractors who have no policy say in the association. Presently, the Executive Director of NAPPP is Dr. John Caccavale.
