The SIOP Fellow Status nomination process is now open online and ready for use. SIOP Members are invited to nominate a deserving I-O at http://www.siop.org/FellowsOnline/!
The deadline for SIOP Fellow nominations is November 1, 2011.
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.
There is no single criterion for election to Fellow status. 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; Fellow nominees must be endorsed by at least three 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 (http://www.siop.org/FellowsOnline/).
Nominees for Fellow status must:
· Be SIOP Members or International Affiliates for no less than 2 years at the time of election
· Have received their PhD at least 10 years previously, and
· Have made unusual and outstanding contributions to I-O psychology.
The Fellowship Committee reviews all candidates and makes its recommendations to the SIOP Executive Committee. New Fellows will be announced at the 2012 SIOP Conference in San Diego.
Detailed procedures for nominating SIOP Fellows, and for APA and APS Fellowship, are available on the SIOP Website. For additional information or clarification, feel free to contact Fellowship Chair Wally Borman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
