The Council of Representatives is the legislative body of APA and has full power and authority over the affairs and funds of the association within the limitations set by the certificate of incorporation and the bylaws, including the power to review, upon its own initiative, the actions of any board, committee, division, or affiliated organization. Council is composed of representatives of divisions; representatives of state, provincial, and territorial psychological associations (SPTAs); and the members of the board of directors.
The SIOP Elections Committee intends to submit a list of three nominees for this position to APA for the ballot. The nominees will be those eligible members who receive the highest number of nominations. It is required that the each nominee submit a candidate statement not to exceed 250 words. These statements will be posted on the APA and SIOP websites to help educate voters. The ballot to vote for APA Council Representatives will come from APA.
