Volunteer for a SIOP Committee

5/6/2015-

by SIOP Administrative Office

Serve the Society While Furthering Initiatives to Support I-O Psychology

One of the best ways to become more involved in SIOP is through committee service. With only a small administrative staff and a membership of more than 8,000, SIOP relies heavily on volunteers to support and maintain the organization’s vitality. When you volunteer for a SIOP committee, you are taking an active role in furthering the initiatives of your professional association and advancing the field of industrial-organizational psychology in general.

The annual SIOP committee-forming period will begin soon, and we now invite you to submit your volunteer application via the online SIOP Committee Volunteer System (CVS) following the instructions below. 

Committee chairs will use the CVS to locate potential volunteers in the coming months, with a July deadline to submit committee rosters.  Please act soon and submit your volunteer application to ensure you are properly considered for membership on the committees that most interest you. A list of SIOP committees can be found here.

It’s easy to submit your volunteer application*:

  1. Visit www.siop.org/CVS.
     
  2. Log in with your SIOP username and password (there is a forgot username/password tool available at that site if you need a reminder).
     
  3. Follow the steps indicated to complete your volunteer application.
     
  4. Upon completion, you will receive an email verifying that your application was received.

Please note the following important points regarding SIOP committees:

  • Committee chairs will be very busy in the coming months contacting interested volunteers and finalizing their committee rosters.  Please allow a few months for your application to be reviewed before contacting SIOP to inquire on your status. 
  • There will be more members interested in volunteering than there will be available volunteer positions.  If you are not selected for a committee this year, please try again next year at this time.
  • Only one student member is permitted per committee.  Therefore, if you are a SIOP Student Affiliate, please be aware that you may not be invited to join a committee at this time, but your application is still welcome.

For technical assistance when using the CVS online program, please contact Emeka Ewuzie at eewuzie@siop.org or 419-353-0032. For questions about volunteering, membership or SIOP in general please contact siop@siop.org.

*If you are currently serving on a committee and wish to continue to serve on that committee, please disregard these four steps.  Chairs will deal with their current volunteers directly.
