President's Message

This fourth and final President’s Message is dedicated to two major issues that SIOP and the profession of I-O psychology squarely face today and in our future. Let me elaborate on them here and hope they stimulate our continued thinking, discussion, and strategic actions as a society.

The first issue pertains to very notable and noticeable changes in our profession and membership within SIOP. Although these changes have been documented in the recent past (e.g., see Rob Silzer & Chad Parson, TIP, July 2015), they need to be reassessed more broadly and more often. To focus on one important example that is already impacting our future: Current trends reveal rapid growth in the number of terminal master’s I-O programs, along with the high volume of I-O psychologists coming out of them and working in an increasingly wider range of professional settings. Concurrent with this trend, or perhaps because of it, many PhD I-O programs are beginning to incorporate terminal master’s programs, both on-campus and online.

I’ve been thinking about change lately, prompted by an exciting email I received in January. Shelly Zedeck was wondering if I had any interest in his collection of old TIP issues. At first, I hesitated. I was only in California temporarily, so a logistics challenge presented itself. How would I transport these treasures from the West Coast to the East Coast? How many could I fit in my carry-on before resorting to shoving them in pockets or under my hat? After only a few minutes of deliberation, though, I decided the airline acrobatics were worth it.  I couldn’t pass up the chance to get my hands on this archive of SIOP history.  In case you are wondering, by the way, I can fit exactly 12 issues of TIP into my laptop case. Only three can fit under a hat.
