Tracy L. Wareing is the Executive Director of American Public Human Services Association (APHSA), a bipartisan, nonprofit membership organization representing the state and local human service agencies through their top-level leadership. APHSA houses nine affiliate organizations, whose members administer program-level and system-support operations in the states. Building on the expertise and experience of the APHSA membership, Wareing is leading the Association’s efforts to drive transformation of the health and human services system to a more sustainable path that is both effective and cost efficient. Wareing currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Alliance for Children and Families (a national membership association representing not-for-profit human serving organizations) and Melwood (a non-profit company providing services for persons with differing abilities). She is a strong advocate for strengthening public-private partnerships in order to advance the collective impact of both sectors on the human services field.
