- The APAGS Advocacy Coordinating Team (ACT) is composed of psychology students who primarily engage in legislative advocacy work on behalf of the science and profession of psychology, in the interest of individuals studying, researching and practicing psychology, and on behalf of individuals who are recipients of psychological services.
- ACT members promote the welfare of graduate students and the vigor of the profession by their participation in legislative lobbying efforts.
- APAGS ACT represents all subfields of psychology equally in its legislative and advocacy efforts.
- Members and designees of the ACT committee assist with the recruitment, organization and administration of the Campus Representative network to help facilitate the flow of communication between the APAGS Board and its constituents.
