The Ethics Committee seeks nomination for three slates (Terms Jan. 1, 2018-Dec. 31, 2020). The focus of each slate will be:

  • Slate 1: Research and publication.
  • Slate 2: Ethics education and training.
  • Slate 3: Practitioner with demonstrated licensing board and/or adjudication experience.

The Ethics Committee evaluates candidate experience regarding ethical conduct of psychologists (e.g., serving on a state association ethics committee, state board of psychology or human subjects institutional review board), in research or in ethics education. Ethics Committee members must be willing to commit approximately 10-20 hours per month to ongoing committee work and approximately 40 hours in preparation for each of the 2 meetings per year of three days each. Additional meetings may be required. Meetings are held at APA headquarters in Washington, D.C., and members’ travel, lodging and meal expenses are covered by the committee’s budget. The committee also gives presentations at convention and attendance (at your own expense) and active involvement is ordinarily expected.

The deadline to submit nominations is March 3, 2017. Self-nominations are encouraged. The Board of Directors encourages the nomination of those members who may be new to APA governance or who are underrepresented in the current governance structure.
