Bylaws of the American Psychological Association - Article III: Bills of Rights for Members

  1. All Members and Fellows shall have the right to vote, to hold office, and to secure fair consideration for governance appointment in the Association. Voting in any Association election may be done by either mail or electronic means.

  2. All Members, Fellows, and Associate members and Affiliates shall be treated with respect and without discrimination on the basis of race, national or ethnic origin, religion, gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation, age, mental or physical disability. This does not preclude the Association from fulfilling its obligation to carry out activities or programs that have as their goal the amelioration of conditions that may restrict Members from full participation in the Association or its activities and programs.

  3. Any individual Member or group of individual Members who believe their rights as Members of the Association, as specified in this Article, or any other rights, have been abridged by actions taken by an element of the Association's governance structure or any employee or employees of the Association may seek such remedies as may be provided under procedures established by the Council of Representatives.
