2006-2007 State Affairs Committee Goals

 
Submitted by: Dennis J. Johnson, Chair
 
Date: September 6, 2006
 
Goals:
 
1.      Reconstitute the committee membership as needed.
 
The committee has been reduced in size either because of a direct request to be taken off of the committee or because the person has not replied to numerous e-mails requesting confirmation. It would be helpful if new members joined the committee. 

  • Arnold, David W.
  • Blanton, Judith S.
  • Fischer, Donald L.
  • Gormanous, Greg 
  • Lindner, Steven J.
  • Nagy, Mark S.
  • Powell, Jevon K.
  • Scontrino, M. Peter 
  • Sumner, Kenneth 
  • Waln, Ronald F.
  • Werner, Blakely J.  
2.      Continue to review and update website information, including links to state and provincial boards. 
 
Committee members have been assigned states and/or provincial boards to review and update website information; including links to state and provincial boards. Several committee members have not returned the necessary information to date following repeated requests. 
 
3.      Provide referrals and information to members/student affiliates seeking licensure.
 
Each committee member has been asked to identify all Industrial/Organizational Psychology programs in their assigned states and or provincial boards and to introduce themselves to the Chairs of these programs. They are to inform the chair that they are SIOP’s contact for their state/province regarding licensure. Committee members were also to identify and contact student representatives to do the same.  
 
4.      Continue to collect sunset information on licensing laws for all state and provinces.
 
See Goal 2 above.
 
5.      Participate in Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards annual meeting to continue to keep them aware of the needs of I-O psychologists.
 
I am planning to attend the ASPPB meeting in October to monitor issues that may impact I-O Psychologists and participate in relevant discussions
 
6.      Establish a liaison with the graduate student organization to make licensing information readily available to graduate students
 
Each committee member has been asked to identify all Industrial/Organizational Psychology programs in their assigned states and or provincial boards and to introduce themselves to the Chairs of these programs. They are to inform the chair that they are that they are SIOP’s contact for their state/province regarding licensure. Committee members were also to identify and contact student representatives to do the same.
 
Problems or Action Items
 
The number of participants on the committee has dropped making it more difficult for the participants to track possible changes in state and provincial laws. I do not know how one would go about recruiting individuals to participate on this committee. The level of responsibility is relatively low.
