Lori Foster Thompson has been elected as the newest member of the SIOP Executive Board by virtue of her election as Division 14 representative to the APA Council. Results were announced last week by APA. SIOP members who are also APA members were eligible to vote in the election. Thompson was the top vote getter in a field of three candidates.
The full election results are available here. SIOP’s election procedures call for full voting results to be made available online to members.
Thompson will begin her 3-year term on January 1, 2014. Thompson has already begun her service as a board member after being appointed by President Tammy Allen to fill the unexpired term of Paul Thayer, who announced his resignation from the APA representative position at the April Executive Board meeting.
