SIOP Endorses Randall P. White for APA Board

The election for the American Psychological Association (APA) President begins on September 16, and will close October 30, 2019. The ballot will also have 2 slates for APA Board of Directors. APA will distribute ballots to their voting members.

APA members nominated five candidates to appear on the 2020 president-elect ballot. SIOP President Eden King sent all candidates three questions that are directly related to SIOP interests. Three of the five candidates responded and their full answers appear on the SIOP website.

The SIOP Executive Board approved a motion from the four APA Council Representatives representing SIOP/Division 14 (Tammy Allen, Jeff McHenry, Stephen Stark, and Sara Weiner) to formally endorse Randall (Randy) P. White for APA Board of Directors.

Information about the elections, including links to extended information about each of the candidates for president is available on the APA elections page.​

​APA has more than 71,000 voting members, but recent APA Presidential elections have been decided with only 4,500-6,000 votes for the elected individual. There are about 1,100 SIOP members who are eligible to vote in APA elections. We can make an impact on APA elections. Please review the candidates' statements and vote your conscience before the October 30 deadline!
