The APA is pleased to announce that the timing of the leadership nominations process is changing. Prior to this year, the process lasted eighteen months from the time a vacancy was announced to the start of the term, and more than a year from nomination to service. Normally, a call for nominations would go out on March 1. However, beginning this year, there will be no call for nominations in the spring.
Starting in 2015-2016, the call for nominations will be in the fall, decisions will be made at the winter meeting of the board of officers, and new committee members will begin their terms in the summer. The entire nomination and appointment process will now take place within a single academic year.
We look forward to receiving your nominations for APA leadership positions this fall.
