Call for Nominations
The APA Citizen Psychologist program is an initiative of APA President-elect Jessica Henderson Daniel for 2018 and beyond.
APA Citizen Psychologists serve as leaders in their various communities. Through prolonged engagement in significant activities, they contribute to improving the lives of all. This can include public service, volunteerism, board membership and other strategic roles often not directly associated with the day-to-day work of psychologists in our careers. APA Citizen Psychologists bring psychological science and expertise to bear on existing challenges to improve community well-being locally, nationally or globally.
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.
