Nominations invited for APA boards and committees
All members of the American Psychological Association are invited to submit nominations for members of the following APA boards and committees that report directly to the Board of Directors and Council of Representatives:
Board of Scientific Affairs
Board of Educational Affairs
Publications and Communications Board
Board for the Advancement of Psychology in the Public Interest
Board of Professional Affairs
Policy and Planning Board
Committee on International Relations in Psychology
Committee on Rural Health
Committee on Structure and Function of Council
Committee for the Advancement of Professional Practice
Commission for the Recognition of Specialties and Proficiencies in Professional Psychology
Nominations can be submitted on the nominations website (login using MyAPA account ID and password). The deadline for submitting nominations is March 20, 2013.
Following the nomination deadline, slates of three names for each opening will be developed by the relevant board or committee. The Board of Directors will review and approve the slates at its June meeting. The Council of Representatives will then vote on each slate in the fall. The individuals who receive the highest numbers of votes (one winner per slate) will join the boards and committees in 2014.
See Boards and Committees for further information about these governance groups. Other APA committees report to and have their members selected by these groups, rather than the Board of Directors or Council of Representatives. Questions can be directed to Garnett Coad, director of elections (phone: (202) 336-6087).
