Minutes Executive Committee Meeting: 11/8/03 Vancouver

David Gorfein, APA Division 3 Secretary-Treasurer


Members Present: Randall Engle (President), Alice Healy (President-Elect), Mark Ashcraft, Earl Hunt, Judy Kroll, Tom Zentall, David Gorfein (secretary-treasurer)

Guests: Andy Conway (Program chair), Kristi Multhaup, and Mark Faust (Newsletter)

Engle announced that Manny Donchin had indicated his willingness to serve the term as council representative relinquished due to the illness of William Dember.

Program Committee Report: Indicated a good deal of difficulty getting speakers to attend the meeting in Hawaii. Suggestions made included inviting division officers and others who must attend to speak. A subsequent discussion touched on the possibility of following divisions 2 and 8 in moving the meeting to a different location from the main APA meeting. It was suggested that we might attach on to the Psychonomic Society meeting. No formal action was taken.

Newsletter: We agreed to an electronic newsletter format with issues in Feb/March and Aug/September of each year. There will be a President’s column, one from graduate students, and someone will be sought to add a humor column. In subsequent (electronic) discussion the consensus was not to accept advertising in the newsletter.

Fellows: It was decided to conduct the normal fellow review this year and not solicit fellows from among Fellows of other divisions.

The problem of finding a replacement for Kurt Salzinger at APA was discussed but no action was taken.

Respectfully submitted,

David S. Gorfein
