Leadership team

As an independent, not-for-profit news cooperative, our U.S. newspaper members elect a board of directors to provide corporate direction according to AP bylaws.

Within AP, the senior managers who oversee our essential operations make up the Associated Press Management Committee. The APMC meets regularly to make policy and business decisions that keep us at the forefront of accurate and trustworthy global journalism.
