* Develop educational materials for distribution to psychologists.
* Recommend ways to integrate gay, lesbian and bisexual issues into APA activities to further the cause of the civil and legal rights of lesbian, gay and bisexual psychologists.
Nominees may have contributed to the mission either through direct CLGBC service or independent work of a scientific, professional, educational, leadership or political nature.
The nomination deadline is May 1. Nominations should include a letter of no more than 500 words that highlights the nominee's achievements, a current curriculum vitae and the names of three people who have been asked to write reference letters.
