James Outtz Memorial Service

There will be a memorial service at the SIOP Annual Conference to celebrate the life of SIOP President-Elect Jim Outtz, who passed away March 26. Jim was a remarkable man who made important contributions to the field of I-O psychology and the SIOP organization.

A Fellow in SIOP, APA, and the American Educational Research Association, Jim began volunteering with SIOP in the mid-1990s and has contributed greatly to our organization, the APA and the wider profession during his 40-year career. With a focus on the development and validation of employment selection procedures, Jim made major contributions in the areas of fairness in the workplace, equal employment opportunity and best practices in employment selection. Most recently Jim has focused on applying principles of I-O psychology to policing reform.

“I was profoundly sad to hear that Jim passed away,” said President Steve Kozlowski. “ I  admired Jim for his integrity, determination, and commitment to the highest ideals of our profession. He will be missed.”

The memorial will be held Thursday, April 14, 5:30 to 6:30 PM, in Room 207 D of the Anaheim Convention Center (located next door to the Hilton Anaheim). The gathering is being organized by Shelly Zedeck and Wayne Cascio. You are invited and encouraged to attend.
