2010 APA Program Committee Goals and Progress Report Form

Committee Chair Name: David Mayer
Date: March 16, 2010

Progress Report
Committee Members:
We have 18 people who are on the committee and are serving as reviewers.
Strategic Planning Goals:
Our committee goals are most relevant to the SIOP strategic goal of being a “Visible and trusted authority on work-related psychology” and to the SIOP Vision of being “recognized as the premier professional group committed to advancing the science and practice of the psychology of work.”
1.      Encourage Division 14 members’ submissions to and attendance at the 2010 APA conference. 
Action: We will continue standard practice of advertising in TIP and other media as appropriate. We also will continue the practice of asking SIOP submitters if they would be willing to consider presenting their work at APA if there is not room on the SIOP program.
Summer 2009 Progress: We willinclude an advertisement in the January TIP (the deadline is November 1st). As indicated in the spring report we will solicit papers from SIOP submitters whose papers were not accepted for SIOP.
Fall, Winter 2009 Progress: We included an advertisement on the SIOP web page and also sent an e-mail that went out to all SIOP members. We also invited submitters who were rejected from SIOP to be a part of the APA program.
Final Report: We invited authors of over 140 posters and 2 symposia/discussion/tutorial submissions that were not accepted for SIOP to participate in the APA conference. This produced 80 posters and 2 symposia/discussion sessions for the 2010 conference. I will also submit a conference highlights article for the July 2010 TIP and APA will include a similar set of division highlights in upcoming publications. We also included 60 APA submissions that are in 20 different paper sessions.
2.      Assemble experienced review committee.
Action: We have assembled a diverse and highly qualified review team. We will supplement the current list with additional members invited by the incoming program chair and potentially through other sources.
Summer 2009 Progress: As indicated in the spring, our committee is already a good size but we will hopefully add a few new members based on Dr. Fritzche’s suggestions.
Fall, Winter 2009 Progress: We added a couple of members and have a total of 18 members.
Final Report: The final list of committee members is attached. I have thanked the committee members for their participation and have encouraged them to serve again next year. 
3.      Actively seek out APA symposia that would be of mutual interest to Division 14 members and members from other divisions to increase Division 14 exposure. Lead and support cross-cutting initiatives that involve multiple divisions for APA programming.
Action: We will continue the current practice of coordinating with the SIOP conference chair to identify quality proposals that are not accepted for the SIOP conference.
Summer 2009 Progress: We will be in touch with the SIOP conference chair in the coming months once decisions are made about SIOP submissions.
Fall, Winter 2009 Progress: We will co-sponsor an event with Division 5. In addition, we will co-sponsor a symposia on teams with Division 8.
Final Report: As noted above, we included several submissions that were not accepted for SIOP on the APA program. In addition, under the leadership of Rich Klimoski, we created a special Evidence-based Practice in I/O Psychology Session chaired by Rich Klimoski with several excellent participants. We also have an invited talk from Ed Salas as well as many interesting sessions that were independently submitted and that seem likely to attract considerable interest.
4.      Encourage local I-O involvement in the APA conference. 
Action: We will actively solicit submissions from local I-O psychologists using local I-O groups and advertising mechanisms. We also will invite distinguished SIOP members from the San Diego area to participate in the program. As one example, Dr. Ben Schneider may be invited to give an address at the conference. We will solicit advice from other program committee members to suggest other possible San Diego-area SIOP members for additional sessions and we will attempt to identify an appropriate San Diego area I-O group we can contact to encourage participation.
Summer 2009 Progress: We plan to contact some speakers and key local groups in the fall.
Fall, Winter 2009 Progress: We contacted several people. We contacted Rich Klimoski who is helping organize the “evidence-based practice” session. We contacted Mark and Karen Ehrhart at SDSU but they are unable to include a session. We contact David Morris, the president of the San Diego I/O psychologists association, and hope to hear from him soon.
Final Report: We were unable to get any local people to present but will encourage the local schools to attend. Also, we are bringing in some wonderful national and international talent.
 5.      Develop sessions that attract APA attendees who are not SIOP members for the purpose of exposing attendees to the science, practice, and/or teaching of I-O psychology. 
Action: The 2008 program chair, Chris Robert, organized a session titled “Evidence-based Practice in I-O Psychology” that included Richard Klimoski and Vicki Vandaveer as co-chairs, and all of our SIOP representatives to the APA Council (Drs. Dipboye, Knapp, Salas, Barnes-Farrell, and Cortina) as panelists. Further, the 2009 program chair, Bob Sinclair, organized a similar session for the 2009 conference. Thus, we will likely put together a related session at the 2010 conference. Finally, our traditional jointly-sponsored reception with Division 5 should help continue to expose non-members to I-O psychology. 
Summer 2009 Progress: We received feedback from the former chair, Bob Sinclair, who said this session was a success and many people would be willing to serve again. I plan to contact Rich Klimoski and others this fall. Also, Bob said Division 5 takes the lead in sponsoring the joint reception but I plan to contact the Division 5 chair as well.
Fall, Winter 2009 Progress: We contacted Rich Klimoski and he is organizing a session. We were in contact with the chairs from Division 5 and 8 and have some joint sessions in the works.
Final Report. As noted above and detailed in the session summary at the end of this document, we have created a program that is likely to appeal to a diverse array of APA attendees, including non-SIOP members. This includes the Evidence-based practice session and the invited address from Dr. Salas as well as the Division 5 social hour and several other interesting sessions.
