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.”

Matthew Haynes 0 388 Article rating: No rating

Creating a knowledge pool of experts, seasoned professionals, and peers who can provide sound advice in a meaningful and tangible way is an invaluable asset. This is what spurred the creation of the “How to WIN in the Workplace” online discussion series. The goal is to bring together panelists with varying backgrounds and experiences to speak on real workplace topics, questions, and problems. Attendees are encouraged to have real discussions in a true “Ask me anything” format around the topic for the session.

Hosted by the SIOP Women’s Inclusion Network (WIN), the kick-off of their online discussion sessions, How to WIN in the Workplace: Salary Negotiations, will be January 27th at 5 pm CST. We will explore the challenges and strategies of salary negotiation with Drs. Alexis Fink, Julie Olson-Buchanan, Kecia Thomas, and Nick Salter.  The four panelists provide both academic and applied insights around the topic of salary negotiations as well as unique experiences on the topic. The session will be conducted in an informal style, and you are encouraged to send in questions before the session or to ask during the session.
