Call for Nominations
Master Lecturers and Distinguished Scientist Lecturers
The American Psychological Association’s (APA) Board of Scientific Affairs (BSA) is soliciting nominations for speakers for the 2010 Master Lecture Program and the 2010 Distinguished Scientist Lecture Program. These annual programs spotlight experts in psychological science and are sponsored by the APA’s Science Directorate.
Nominations must be received by February 16, 2009
Selected speakers receive an honorarium of $1,000 and reimbursement for travel expenses, up to $1,000. All nominees should be excellent public speakers. BSA will review all nominations at its 2009 spring meeting and begin to contact potential speakers for these programs. Nominations may be for either the Distinguished Lecture Program or the Master Lecture Program (or both).
The Distinguished Scientist Lecture Program, developed by BSA, supports up to three (3) psychological scientists to speak at Regional Psychological Association meetings to be held in 2010. Speakers must be actively engaged in research, with expertise in any area. A list of previously selected speakers and their topics can be found on-line at http://www.apa.org/science/distsci-lecturer.html.
