In order to ensure the right issues get in front of the candidates in the early presidential nominating states, APPS has assembled a stellar National Advisory Board of prominent national security and business leaders. These leaders know the international challenges certain to face the next American president on day one. The National Advisory Board will engage with APPS citizen activists on the ground, in early presidential nominating states, to raise the level of debate and push candidates beyond rhetoric and talking points.
