CAPP is the governance committee dedicated to the APA Practice Organization, reporting to the APA Practice Organization Board of Directors. CAPP works with the APA Practice Organization board to identify, plan and implement projects related to the defense and enhancement of professional practice. Members of CAPP must be licensed psychologists who are members of the APA Practice Organization and a state, provincial or territorial psychological association, or an APA division. CAPP members are elected based on specific slates and represent all APA Practice Organization members.
CAPP elections were held between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30. The CAPP nomination period is held annually between February and March. Members of the Practice Organization — those who have paid the Practice Organization membership dues — are eligible to participate in the process of nominating and electing CAPP members. The Practice Organization is a legally separate companion organization to APA. Membership to the Practice Organization is separate from APA.
