Congratulations to APA’s newly elected 2009 initial and current fellows

Hats off to the 101 Initial Fellows elected by the Board of Directors and Council of Representatives at this years annual convention. We also want to send congratulations out to the Current Fellows nominated for 2009 as well. The 2009 Initial Fellows will receive their certificates from the Fellows Committee sometime in October.

A special note to the Division Fellows Chairs, give yourself the edge and get an early start by following these suggestions from the APA Fellows Committee: invite your division fellows committee to think about possible nominations, look at the division’s membership roster to identify possible nominees, and for those divisions that depend on nominations from the division’s membership, begin your announcements regarding call for nominations in your division’s newsletter. If you need help or have any questions, please contact Sonja Wiggins in APA’s Central Office at (+1/800) 374-2721 (ext. 5590) or via e-mail.
