Today begins the 30-day voting period to elect new divisional officers, a new member-at-large of the APA board of officers, and consider an amendment to the association bylaws. Members affiliated with the Pacific Division may also vote on a proposed amendment to the Pacific Division bylaws.

Eastern Division Elections

This year, the Eastern Division will elect a vice president, a member at large of the executive committee, and two members of the nominating committee. Before voting, learn more about the candidates by reading their candidate bios.

Central Division Elections

This year, the Central Division will elect a vice president, a member at large of the executive committee, and four members of the nominating committee. Before voting, learn more about the candidates by reading their candidate bios.

Pacific Division Elections

The Pacific Division elections were conducted during the virtual business meeting held earlier this month. Members of the Pacific Division are encouraged to vote on the board member at large, the proposed APA bylaws amendment, and the proposed Pacific Division bylaws amendment using the ballot link below.

Member at Large of the APA Board of Officers

Following an open nomination process and deliberations by the nominating committee, three candidates now stand for election for the position of member-at-large of the APA’s board of officers. The person elected will serve a three-year term beginning July 1, 2020.

The three candidates for election were given the opportunity to submit candidate statements, photos, and other ballot information. Members are encouraged to review the candidate information prior to voting.

Bylaws Amendments

At its meeting in November 2019, the APA board of officers proposed an amendment to the association bylaws to create a seat on the board for the chair of the APA Graduate Student Council. To be adopted, an amendment must be approved by a majority of those voting in each of the divisions. Members are encouraged to review the proposed bylaws amendments prior to voting.
