SIOP Fellow Nominations Due November 1
The deadline for nomination of SIOP Fellows is November 1, 2012. The Fellow status nomination process is now online here. SIOP Members or Fellows can nominate, and only online nominations will be accepted. Nominees for Fellow status must:
· Be SIOP Members or International Affiliates for no less than 2 years at the time of election
· Have an earned doctorate from an accredited institution, preferably ten (10) years ago or more.
· Have made unusual and outstanding contributions to I-O psychology.
The Fellowship Committee, chaired by Jerry Hedge (also including Cristina Banks, Michael Coovert, David Day, Art Gutman, Rick Jacobs, Amy Kristof-Brown, Paul Levy, Scott Tannenbaum, and Nancy Tippins) reviews all candidates and makes its recommendations to the SIOP Executive Committee. New Fellows will be announced at the 2013 SIOP Annual Conference in Houston.
Fellow status is an honor bestowed upon SIOP Members and International Affiliates who have shown evidence of unusual and outstanding contributions or performance in I-O psychology.
The contributions of nominees for Fellow are evaluated in terms of impact on I-O psychology and its advancement, and their contribution to the mission of the Society: “to enhance human well-being and performance in organizational and work settings by promoting the science, practice, and teaching of industrial and organizational psychology,” and to SIOP’s Core Values (adopted by the Executive Committee, January 29, 2006):
· Science driven results—dedicated to the scientific method and a foundation in psychology as the basis for the practice, education, and research of I-O psychology.
· Service—dedicated to improving the effectiveness of organizations and the well-being of individuals in work settings.
· Excellence—dedicated to excellence in all that our members do, including practice, research, and education.
· Integrity—dedicated to honesty, integrity, and the pursuit of the highest ethical standards.
· Community—dedicated to achieving and maintaining a cohesive professional, collegial, and inclusive community through high levels of member involvement.
SIOP Fellows can come from all I-O areas and from all employment settings. APA (and SIOP) recognizes several bases for Fellowship: Research, Teaching, Administration, Professional Service, and Practice. The common criterion in every case is demonstrated outstanding contribution. Fellowship is recognition by one’s peers of that contribution, as Fellow nominees must be endorsed by at least 3 SIOP Fellows. Members do not nominate themselves; they must be nominated by another SIOP Member or Fellow who coordinates the submission of the required nomination materials on the Fellow Status Online Nomination Tool.
Detailed procedures for nominating SIOP Fellows are available on the SIOP website. For additional information or clarification, contact Jerry Hedge at firstname.lastname@example.org.
