Get Involved with APA Divisions
APA Divisions are special interest groups organized and run by members. With 54 divisions, it's easy to find a community that shares your interests.
Boards, Committees & Groups
Read candidate bios, statements, and Q&A sessions of this year's candidates: Jack Kitaeff, PhD, JD; Rosie Phillips Bingham, PhD; Raymond A. DiGiuseppe, PhD; Steven D. Hollon, PhD.
APA members nominated five candidates to appear on the 2017 president-elect ballot. The final ballot will be sent to members on Sept. 15, and will close Oct. 30, 2017. Members who have an email address on file with APA will be sent the ballot by email. Those members who do not have an email address will be sent a paper ballot and will have the option to vote online or by mail.
Tips for Nomination
How to prepare, your letter of interest, and next steps: If you have been involved in APA Division or state psychological association leadership as an early career psychologist, you may be well-qualified to serve at the APA level of governance. Calls for nominations should come across your division or state association email list, most often in December with nominations due in March or in late spring.
APA governance is primarily made up of boards and committees. Committees report to boards and the first position held in APA governance is usually on a committee.
