- May also be an Endorser of the candidate. If the Nominator is also an Endorser, the Nominator also completes the SIOP/APA “Fellow Status Evaluation Form” and the SIOP/APA “Fellow Status Evaluation Worksheet”.
- Coordinates the filing of all nomination materials on the SIOP Fellows Online Nomination Program.
After identifying a candidate for Fellow status, the Nominator coordinates the gathering of Nomination materials. This is a critical role in the nomination process; the Fellowship Committee depends on the Nominator to assure that all materials are filled out properly and filed on time. Nominators must familiarize themselves with the requirements for Fellowship and assure that all procedures are followed meticulously. We urge Nominators to read these instructions carefully—Nominators are responsible for assuring proper completion and timely filing of the nomination materials using the SIOP Fellows Online Nomination Program.
Nominators must be Members of SIOP, but not necessarily Fellows themselves. Nominators will ordinarily also be Endorsers of the Candidate, and the Nominator may be one of the required three (3) SIOP Fellows who endorse the candidate.
