Last chance to nominate Practice Organization leaders

Have a say in who represents you. Submit your Committee for the Advancement of Professional Practice nomination by March 28.

By Kathleen S. Brown, PhD

Three positions are available on the Committee for the Advancement of Professional Practice (CAPP), the APA Practice Organization’s governance committee that helps advance and protect the professional and economic well-being of practicing psychologists.

By nominating yourself or a colleague today, you can help shape the future of professional practice. Psychologists who have paid the Practice Organization dues for 2016 are eligible to submit nominations through the CAPP Nominations page. Newly elected committee members will serve a three-year term that begins on Jan. 1, 2017.

The APA Practice Organization is the only national association working on legislative, legal and marketplace advocacy on behalf of practicing psychologists. Your input can make a difference. 

The nominations and elections process will proceed as follows:

  • Once nominations close on March 28, CAPP will review the nominations and propose three slates for review and approval by the APA Practice Organization Board of Directors at its June meeting. The slates will be proposed to help ensure that CAPP has representation across practice types, settings and sizes, as well as diversity in the practitioners nominated and their geographic location.
  • CAPP member elections will open on Aug. 1 and close Sept. 30. As a Practice Organization member, you are encouraged to vote. The election will be handled by Survey and Ballot Services Inc., an outside company.

We welcome your feedback about the new nomination and election process. Please sent your question or comments.
