APA Presidential Election Deadline Approaching!


by SIOP Administrative Office

The election for the American Psychological Association (APA) President will close October 30, 2017. Please do not miss your chance to help determine the future of psychology—vote before it is too late!

APA members nominated five candidates to appear on the 2017 president-elect ballot. SIOP President Fred Oswald sent all candidates three questions that are directly related to SIOP interests. Three of the five candidates responded and their full answers appear on the SIOP website.

                                                     Read the candidates answers here!

The SIOP Executive Board’s Emergency Action Committee unanimously approved a motion from the four APA Council Representatives representing SIOP/Division 14 (Georgia T. Chao, Deirdre Knapp, Gary Latham, and Stephen Stark), to formally endorse Rosie Phillips Bingham for APA President. SIOP generally does not endorse a candidate for APA President. However, this endorsement is based on thorough consideration and information about the candidates.

                             A rationale and discussion of SIOP's endorsement can be found here.

                      A list of frequently asked questions regarding the election can be found here.

For information about all candidates, you can read an article in the recent issue of the APA Monitor or visit the APA elections page. You can also view video statements from the candidates on APA’s website.

We can make an impact on APA Presidential elections. Please vote your conscience before the October 30 deadline!
