REASONS FOR VOTING
Over 73% of Council members favored a YES vote. The Board of Directors and Council Leadership Team unanimously recommended approval of graduate student voting rights. The Boards of Professional Affairs, Scientific Affairs, and Psychology in the Public Interest further recommended approval.
WHAT DO PAST APA PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES HAVE TO SAY?
We asked the five members who ran for 2020 APA President the following question:
“Should APA Graduate Student members be given the privilege to vote on all association matters within APA after one year of membership?”
PLEASE VOTE YES ON THE AMENDMENT “VOTING PRIVILEGES AND NEW MEMBERSHIP CATEGORY FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS.”
Creates a “graduate student” membership category for graduate psychology students.
After one year, members in this category will vote on the same issues that full APA members and some Associates already do.
The item further aligns the voter waiting period for associate members with that of graduate student members.
We now turn to you to vote and be a part of history!
