Anonym 0 1939 Article rating: No rating

When the SIOP Executive Board convenes at the JW Marriott Hotel in Austin, Texas at the end of this month, Gavan O’Shea, elected as one of SIOP’s four APA Council Representatives last June, will take over for departing representative Stephen Stark.

As Dr. Stark says farewell to his duties as an APA Council Representative, it’s not really “goodbye!” He remains actively involved in SIOP, currently serving on the Workshop, International Affairs, and External Relations Committees.

SIOP is grateful for his continuing work on behalf of the profession and the organization. President-Elect Georgia Chao, who served on the APA Council with him, said, “Steve was an invaluable colleague to work with on Council.  He was diplomatic and thoughtful to the nuances of APA governance and worked well with other members of Council to promote SIOP's interests.”
