MPhA recognizes the diverse areas of practice in Minnesota. Academies allow members in the same practice setting to interact and discuss issues important to their field. Each academy reports to the BOD for any action needing support, as well as the HOD.
Each academy is appointed one delegate at HOD meetings, with one additional delegate per every additional 50 members in the academy. Each academy chair is responsible for setting meetings and agendas for their members. New academy chairs are elected each odd year by the members of the academy.
Members may choose to participate in multiple academies, but may only serve as a delegate for any one academy or district per HOD meeting.
