Division Business

Congratulations to the new division fellows

Four members were elected as new fellows of APA, and four current APA fellows were elected by the division

The Fellows Committee of the Society for General Psychology (APA Division 1) is proud to announce that nine psychologists were elected as fellows of the division, based on their "outstanding and unusual" contributions to general psychology. Four of them were elected as new Fellows of APA, and four current APA Fellows were elected by the division. According to APA, "Fellow status requires that a person's work has had a national impact on the field of psychology beyond a local, state, or regional level. A high level of competence or steady and continuing contribution are not sufficient to warrant Fellow status. National impact must be demonstrated." Of the 93,000 APA members, about 5 percent are Fellows.
