2017 Distinguished Service Contributions Award

Georgia T. Chao, Michigan State University

Dr. Chao’s service to SIOP and to the I-O profession is extensive, sustained, and broad in its reach. She has served in several elected leadership roles, including secretary and as SIOP APA Representative twice. As secretary her duties ranged from planning Executive Board meetings, setting the Executive Board agenda, and writing minutes to coordinating the work of all committee chair reports and activities. She also served as registrar and chair of the Workshop Committee and has been a member of SIOP’s Program Committee, Fellowship Committee, and Governance Task Force. Now in her second term as SIOP APA Council Representative, she is committed to reminding APA that applied psychology is different from clinical practice and has been actively engaged in bringing greater attention to the science of I-O into the larger profession of psychology. Service as APA Council Representative requires a heavy investment of time and diplomacy while using her skills and research expertise in ways that illustrate the value of I-O in arenas where our profession is often overlooked. In addition to her service to SIOP, she has been an ambassador of I-O through her work with other organizations including the Academy of Management, where she was elected to serve on two AoM executive committees; APA’s Committee on International Relations in Psychology; APA’s Presidential Task Force on Mentoring; and the National Research Council.
