2018 President's Winter's Message

Lindsey R. Buckman, PsyDDiv. 31 kicked off 2018 with a big victory! The APA bylaws amendment that will ensure each State Provincial and Territorial Psychological Association (SPTA) and division 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.
