Reminder: Board member-at-large nomination deadline is 9/15
Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Posted by: Linda Nuoffer
This is the last week to submit nominations for at-large
APA board members! Submit nominations by email to [email protected].
Nominations will be accepted through Sunday, September 15, 2013.
Any APA member can submit a nomination for the office of
board member-at-large. Self-nominations are acceptable. However, only regular
members of the association—not international, student, or teacher associate
members—are eligible to serve on the board of officers. You may visit the APA
website to verify your nominee’s APA membership, but the national office will
confirm eligibility of all candidates.
Nominations will be referred to a nominating committee
consisting of the three divisional representatives. The nominating committee
will, after collecting relevant information about the candidates and confirming
their willingness to serve, put forward at least three nominees for each of the
three vacancies. Statements by the candidates will be posted on the APA website
when voting begins.
To effect the staggering of terms, in this first year of
voting, the terms of the three at-large members elected will range from one to
three years; more details on this will be provided when voting opens.
Subsequently, the term of office will be three years and only one at-large
member vacancy will be open per year.
We anticipate that these new members of the board will
better position the APA and its leadership to represent and serve the members
of the association and the profession at large. We very much look forward to
receiving your nominations for these important positions!
