Over the last few weeks, members of the APA elected new divisional officers, a new at-large member of the APA board of officers, four new members of the Graduate Student Council (GSC), and considered an amendment to the association bylaws. We are pleased to announce the results of those votes.

All newly elected members will begin their terms on July 1 and (with the exception of nominating committee members, whose terms vary by division, and GSC members, whose terms are listed below) will serve three-year terms ending June 30, 2020. Divisional vice presidents serve a one-year term as vice president, followed by a one-year term as president, and finally a one-year term as past president.

Congratulations to the winners, and many thanks to all the candidates who stood for election.

Bylaws Amendments

The amendment was approved by a majority of those voting in each of the divisions and has been adopted.
