APA’s Committee on Women in Psychology seeks nominations for new members

Committee on Women in Psychology (CWP): Call for Nominations 2012

The American Psychological Association's Committee on Women in Psychology (CWP) is seeking nominations for two new members to serve a 3-year term from January 2012 through December 2014.   The committee functions as a catalyst by interacting with and making recommendations to the various parts of the APA governing structure and the APA membership, as well as other relevant groups. 

The committee is interested in persons with demonstrated interest and experience in women's issues. Specifically, CWP seeks a psychologist with a disability or expertise in disabilities issues and also a psychologist with expertise in violence against women, including trafficking issues. Letters of nomination should clearly describe the candidate's specific qualifications relative to these areas of expertise.  Women at all career stages are invited to apply. Nominees to CWP must be full members of APA.

Nomination materials should include a letter from the nominee indicating willingness to serve on CWP, a brief statement of the nominee's qualifications, and a current curriculum vita.  Self-nominations are encouraged.  APA nominations are open to members who are retired, are employed less than full-time, or work full-time.  Nominations and supporting materials should be sent by September 1, 2011, to Kari Hill, APA Women's Programs Office, 750 First Street, N.E., Washington, DC, 20002-4242 or via email.
