Affiliated Associations


Affiliated Associations

AKA currently affiliates with 19 academic and professional associations/societies related to promoting physical activity and health. We invite other scholarly and professional associations to join us. We hope it is self-evident, from our mission as stated above, the potential benefits of your society affiliating with AKA. We ask for no money. Instead we seek the following:

  • You agree to be an official affiliate of the AKA. In doing so you grant us permission to promote the affiliation on our affiliated associations web page.
  • Through means available to you, we ask you to promote AKA and relevant initiatives that may be of interest to your members and mission.
  • Appoint an individual to represent your society when affiliating/communicating with AKA.
  • Work with us to identify issues that need to be addressed or promoted by AKA and to assist your association.
  • Share organization resources that may be of mutual interest (e.g., webinars, position statements, data).
  • Assistance in proposing and endorsing any of your staff/members who may want to present or attend AKA meetings. Affiliations are not intended to be a replacement for institution membership in AKA, so interested scholarly and professional associations/societies may choose to become members of AKA. AKA will, however, consider individual requests for presentation and participation in AKA meetings from professionals and staff from affiliate associations, without AKA membership, on a case-by-case basis. It is certainly appropriate that a meeting theme may be of unique interest to an affiliate organization and they may want to send or endorse professionals from their field to attend a specific meeting/workshop.
