About the Division

The Central Division is one of three divisions of the American Philosophical Association, along with the Eastern and Pacific Divisions. In accordance with the APA's Bylaws, each Division is responsible for holding an annual meeting, and the Bylaws state that the Central Division's meeting is to be "in the Midwest." Past Central Division meeting locations have ranged from Denver to Pittsburgh and from Minneapolis to New Orleans.

Although the Divisions have geographical names, any Regular Member of the APA may choose to be affiliated with any one of the Divisions. Any APA member can submit papers to be considered for presentation at Central Division meetings. The Central Division's Program Committee also relies heavily on volunteers in finding commentators and chairs for submitted paper sessions, and anyone may volunteer. However, only members affiliated with the Central Division may be officers of the Central Division, serve on the Division's Executive Committee, Nominating Committee, or Program Committees, or vote in Central Division elections.
