2018 President’s Spring Message

Lindsey R. Buckman, PsyDI am thrilled to be your Div. 31 president this year. Div. 31 kicked off 2018 with a big victory! The APA bylaws amendment that will ensure each SPTA has one seat on the Council of Representatives was passed by the membership. Had the amendment failed, ten of our SPTAs would not have representation on Council in 2019: Alaska, Alberta, British Columbia, Guam, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Quebec, South Carolina, Virgin Islands, and West Virginia. Your votes were critical in solidifying representation for all SPTAs and we thank you for your response to our call for action.

Outstanding Advocacy Leaders

Monica Kurylo, PhD, a member of Divs. 31 and 38, recently was appointed to the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. She has excelled throughout her career. This interview highlights her career as well as changes in health care as she sees it. She offers guidance to students and early career psychologists about how to move into leadership positions.

Benefits of Div. 31 Membership

Membership in Div. 31 has many benefits and include working with SPTAs to advance the profession and to promote the highest standards of ethics, accesssing the division’s email list which allows you to network with members and discuss issues of concern to students, and obtaining mentorship and opportunities for entry into APA governance.
