APISA offers a variety of different scholarly programs and services:

Annual (Biennial) Congress
The Congress is the grandest event of the organization. Its main activity is academic in nature, and focuses on paper presentations in specific panels and workshops. It is also a forum for the Business Meeting where the Executive Secretary of APISA presents his/her annual report and takes cognizance of feedback and resolutions that determine policy direction. Finally, the Congress endorses the democratically elected Executive Committee which also finds it expedient to meet and deliberate on policy issues.
