CODAPAR pays considerable attention to nominations that will ensure diverse representation on the Committee, including gender, sexual orientation, ethnic, racial and cultural minority status, and practice and science concerns.

2007 Call for CODAPAR Nominations

The Committee on Division/APA Relations (CODAPAR) announces the Call for Nominations for our committee for the upcoming year. Each division is invited to submit one nomination for the two seats that will be available for the January 1, 2008 to December 31, 2010 term. Your nominee must be a current officer or a member of the executive board of your division.

CODAPAR makes every effort to select slates that reflect the range of divisional interests and seeks nominations that will ensure appropriate attention to all divisions. CODAPAR pays considerable attention to nominations that will ensure diverse representation on the Committee, including gender, sexual orientation, ethnic, racial and cultural minority status, and practice and science concerns. For the 2008-2010 term, CODAPAR invites divisions to nominate, in particular, ethnic minority nominees and nominees with practitioner or academia backgrounds.

When submitting a nomination, please include a curriculum vita for your division’s nominee and state his/her particular qualifications and interest in the position.

After reviewing the nominations, CODAPAR will forward to the Board of Directors its recommendations for achieving balance among the committee membership with respect to the broad range of interests represented by divisions.

The 2007 members of CODAPAR and their nominating divisions are as follows: Chana Akins, PhD [1/06-12/08 (Division 6)]; Wayne Camara, PhD [1/05-12/07 (Division 1)]; Allan B.

We ask that you acquaint your nominee with the time commitment associated with service on CODAPAR. CODAPAR meets four times per year. The first brief meeting takes place immediately before the Division Leadership Conference and then CODAPAR members participate in the entire conference as presenters and facilitators. The second meeting is held in conjunction with the Spring Consolidated Meetings. CODAPAR meets for the third time at the APA Annual Convention, where it hosts a breakfast for Presidents and President-Elects and meets on the Friday of convention from 9:00 A.M. -12:00 P.M. This meeting is used to begin planning for the next year's Division Leadership Conference. The fourth meeting is held in conjunction with the Fall Consolidated Meetings of APA committees. In addition, the committee will, on an ongoing basis, handle activities described in CODAPAR's mission statement included below:

90-7. COMMITTEE ON DIVISION/APA RELATIONS

There shall be a Committee on Division/APA Relations (CODAPAR) which shall be generally concerned with the mutual involvement of divisions and APA in fostering psychology as a science, as a profession, and as a means of promoting human welfare and shall: (1) serve an advisory function to the Division Services Office and Chief Executive Officer on the mutual implication and impact of activities of APA and divisions: (2) provide leadership to facilitate coordination and communication among divisions and between divisions and APA; (3) make proposals to enhance structural, functional, and policy relations between APA and divisions; (4) plan and host the Division Leadership Conference; (5) provide leadership in developing training programs for division officers at the Division Leadership Conference, the APA annual meeting, or other such forums, to enhance the functioning and benefits offered by divisions and the diversity of the Association's members; and (6) act as a facilitator in resolution of disputes among divisions.

CODAPAR shall consist of six members, each serving a three-year term, and shall report to Council through the Board of Directors. Two new members of CODAPAR will be appointed annually. Nominations will be solicited from divisions, with each division invited to submit a nominee for CODAPAR. Eligible nominees are APA members who are the division's president or another officer or board member for that division. Upon receipt of division nominations, CODAPAR will submit to the Board of Directors a listing of nominees along with its recommendation for achieving balance in representation of the broad interests of divisions as designated in defined slates. An additional goal shall be to achieve diversity among CODAPAR members by striving to obtain gender balance and at least one member from underrepresented groups. The Board of Directors will appoint two new members annually from the slates submitted by CODAPAR.

Your division's nomination should be received in the Division Services Office no later than Thursday, March 1, 2007. CODAPAR will submit the proposed slates to the Board of Directors at their June 2007 meeting.

Membership Recruitment and Retention: Appealing to Early Career Psychologists
Shamin Ladhani, Psy.D.,
Committee on Early Career Psychologists, Division Slate

Membership: The challenges of increasing and retaining members is always on the minds of division leaders. The Committee on Early Career Psychologists (CECP) understands and is always working toward this goal. One of the ways a division may address increasing membership is by appealing to the needs of early career psychologists. It is a little known fact that the jump from student affiliate to full member status may have an early career psychologist contemplating which memberships (APA, SPTAs and divisions) are of most importance to them. The difference in cost is one of the things that early careers cite as the reason for not keeping memberships or attending conventions. Although APA does have a step up dues rate, this is not always enough for most ECPs to continue membership with all of their affiliations.

Upon graduation, ECPs are facing loan debt, starting salaries, beginning families, and transitioning into professional careers. Although it is an exciting time, it is also a time of adjustment both personal and financial. Issues of financial planning become important and family planning becomes forefront. Understanding the issues that ECPs are facing can have an impact on whether or not they continue membership in your division. Membership to an individual needs to have value and for early careers, that may mean something different then it did when they were student members.

CECP has come up with several ideas that may help you to increase membership of ECPS and retain your student members as full members when they graduate. One way is through programming at convention and in hospitality suites. One of the reasons students enjoy division memberships is through the programming offered that allows them to network and meet other students and professionals in an intimate setting. Programming at convention could be geared towards issues that impact early careers the most such as financial planning, self-care, tenure and life/career balance. Some divisions have teamed up with CECP to offer programming at this year’s convention. Another way is directly through membership dues rate. Given that cost is a central issue for ECPs, consider a reduced membership rate or a step-up rate that eases that transition from student affiliate to full member. Some divisions have already successfully implemented reduced rates, coupons and step-up rates for early careers. Finally, consider offering awards or incentives that appeal to early careers psychologists. Several divisions offer distinguished early career awards and/or scholarships to early career members. Knowing that a division recognizes and addresses issue that impact ECPs the most will help an ECP to make the decision to continue membership with that division.

CECP is here to help you address ways to meet the needs of the early career members of your division. Feel free to contact us via e-mail with any questions.

A qualified candidate must demonstrate exemplary performance in working with an underserved population in an applied setting or have developed an innovative method for delivering health services to an underserved population. Nominees may have received their doctoral degree at the time of nomination provided that accomplishments for the award were achieved while a graduate student. Eligible candidates are encouraged to apply from all psychology sub-specialties (e.g., clinical, counseling, organization, school, health) and can be self-nominated or nominated by an APA member.
