A Path to Full SIOP Membership

In May 2014, SIOP Executive Board Member Eric Heggestad proposed an idea he and Satoris Howes developed to create a pathway to full membership for Associate members. An Associate differs from a Member solely based on the educational levels of their degree, disqualifying Associates from holding office, serving as chair of a committee, and, most importantly, voting in SIOP elections.

Dr. Heggestad says Associate Members and students sparked the idea to change the bylaw. “They wanted to serve SIOP. They wanted to vote in SIOP elections. They wanted to be recognized for their professional accomplishments. They simply wanted to be included.” Dr. Heggestad said, “Yet, these bright and talented people who were out in the world doing I-O-related work, were simply not fully welcomed by the professional society with which they most identified.“
