Report of the Nominating Committee

John M. Fischer (chair), Amy Coplan, Jeff Gauthier, and Dominic McIver Lopes (ex officio) served as the 2013-14 nominating committee. The committee nominates the following APA Pacific Division members for terms of office beginning July 1, 2014: for vice-president, Leslie Francis; for representative to the board, Amy Kind; and for member-at-large, Andrew Eshleman.

 

Note The Pacific Division's nominating committee nominates candidates for office. The Bylaws provide for additional nominees by petition. A vice president and a member-at-large are elected annually. A representative to the board and the secretary-treasurer are elected every three years.

 

Proposal to Amend the Pacific Division Bylaws

The Pacific Division Executive Committee proposes the following amendment to the Divisional bylaws. This proposal will the presented for discussion and possible amendment at the 2014 annual business meeting before being put to the vote of members with Pacific Division voting rights by electronic ballot.

Rationale The annual meeting program is no longer published in the January Proceedings and is not distributed to members in advance of the meeting. At the same time, the APA web site is now the principal channel for communicating Divisional business. Therefore, in order to provide due notice of the nominating committee report, it should be published on-line well in advance of the annual meeting.

Current Language of Article 3(a)

a. Nominations made by the nominating committee for all elections to office in the division shall be published in the issue of the APA Proceedings that contains the program of the Pacific division annual meeting (normally the January issue).

Proposed Language for Article 3(a)

a. Nominations made by the nominating committee for all elections to office in the division shall be published on the APA web site no later than February 1 immediately prior to the date of the election.
