The American Philosophical Association is now accepting nominations for appointments to our committees
for terms beginning July 1, 2014.
The APA has twenty committees, including six standing committees authorized by our bylaws and fourteen special committees authorized by the board of directors. There are member vacancies on all twenty committees, as well as vacancies for chair and associate chair positions on five committees. Most committee terms are three years in length.

Please note that both nominators and nominees must be APA members in good standing. Self-nominations are welcome, and members may nominate or be nominated as many times as they wish.
Nominations will only be accepted through the committee nomination system on the APA website
(located in the Members Only menu). Do not submit nominations via email, phone, or postal mail. The deadline for nominations is May 31, 2013.
APA committees fulfill a wide variety of national purposes of the APA and, in that capacity, are responsive to the needs of APA members. The work of the committee members includes the development, planning, and supervision of a broad range of APA projects, such as prizes, awards, newsletters, sessions at divisional meetings, web resources, surveys, input to the APA board of officers, and, in general, activities that help philosophers perform their professional duties as teachers and researchers. Service on an APA committee is a significant opportunity for leadership in the profession and the association, and I
encourage you to take the time to nominate qualified candidates for these important positions.
