Message from the 2016 President

Dinelia RosaDear members of Div. 31,
I am very excited to be your president this year. The full title of our division is Div. 31 (State, Provincial and Territorial Affairs [SPTAs]), with a main focus on SPTA leadership and advocacy. Div. 31 is very unique as it has two memberships, individual SPTAs. With this comes a big responsibility, particularly during this historical time for APA.

Outstanding 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.
