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.
