This is the last week to submit nominations for at-large APA board members! Submit nominations by email to 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!
