Call for Officer Nominations


by SIOP Administrative Office

Be an Active Player for Team SIOP: Make Your Officer Nominations Today

“The executive board is a team whose responsibility is to move SIOP and the profession forward,” says Doug Reynolds, SIOP’s president for the 2012-2013 fiscal year, “So it really matters that we get great people on the team who care about the profession and care about SIOP.”

Participation in SIOP’s nomination process helps determine not only the future of the Society but also of the field of I-O psychology as a whole.

Unlike many other professional associations, where staff handle policy functions, SIOP Executive Board members actively shape policy that guides the work of the organization and the member experience.

Jeff McHenry (SIOP president 2006-2007) points out that in addition to shaping policy, SIOP leaders also play a vital role in administering the work of the Society. “Executive board members really function in our current structure as managers. Most executive board members are managing a function, and so it’s very important that they manage effectively by attracting great people to serve on committees and helping those people get things done.”

The process of selecting new members of the Executive Board for the 2019-2020 fiscal year has begun.  Nominations are now open for elected positions on SIOP’s Executive Board, and the nomination period ends at midnight EDT on September 30. Voting members of SIOP are urged to make nominations for these open offices.
