Awards Committee report

The committee discusses nominees for three division awards

By Nina Brown, EdD

The Awards Committee (Brown, Burlingame, and Stockton) met after the APA conference to select the nominee for the Group Psychologist of the Year Award, to review the procedure for the Diversity Award submitted by that committee and make recommendations to the Board, to review proposed procedures for selection of the Group Psychologist of the Year Award and for the Student Poster Awards as the by-laws and policy manual do not specify these.

The committee has selected a nominee for the Group Psychologist of the Year Award which will be submitted to the Board at the Mid-Winter meeting in January, 2012. An announcement will be made after the Board meeting.

The committee approved the procedure for the Diversity Award submitted by that committee’s chair, Eric Chan, and submitted it to the Board. The Board is reviewing the item and is expected to have a response shortly.

Proposals for the selection of the Group Psychologist of the Year Award and the Student Poster Awards are still being considered by the committee.
