Members of the APC are volunteers.
The Association is managed by a Bureau whose members are elected by its members at the General Assembly.
All important decisions of the Bureau are decided by majority vote.
Parents are invited to become members of the Association at the beginning of each school year.
The Bureau holds elections to elect new members or to renew some mandates in September. Any parent of the school who is a member of the APC can stand for election.
