The Association of Panamerican Athletics (APA) (Spanish: Asociación Panamericana de Atletismo) is a new regional confederation governing body of athletics for national governing bodies and multi-national federations within North, Central and South America, and the Caribbean, replacing the Pan American Athletics Commission.[1]

The organization was founded on October 28, 2011, during the XVI Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Jalisco, México. The inaugural president is Víctor López from Puerto Rico,[2] former president of the Central American and Caribbean Athletic Confederation (CACAC).

Member associations[edit]

Due to the constitution, membership in the Association shall consist of the IAAF member federations which are affiliated members of NACAC and CONSUDATLE as ratified by the IAAF.[4] At this time, APA consists of 44 member federations, 31 of them are member of NACAC, while 13 are member of CONSUDATLE. This means that the APA also comprises the 3 IAAF members without a recognized National Olympic Committee that are therefore no member of the Pan American Sports Organization namely Anguilla, Montserrat, and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
