    Good morning everyone - the deadline for this has been extended due to some technical difficulties yesterday! Deadline is now 5 PM Eastern December 3rd. 


    Good afternoon everyone! This year APA will be in Washington, DC again, and is seeking submissions from Division 14 (SIOP) members. It's late notice, but most submission types are very short (250-500 words for posters, for example).  Submissions are due Monday Dec. 2nd, by 5 PM Eastern Time.

    If you didn't get something finished in time for SIOP, this is a great venue. Here is some additional info from the program chair: 

    Division 14 Call for Proposals

    We encourage Division 14 members to consider presenting at the 2020 American Psychological Association Convention. The Convention will be held August 6 -August 9, 2020 in Washington, D.C.

    More than 10,000 psychologists from around the globe attend APA annually. The annual APA convention is an excellent opportunity for Industrial/Organizational psychologists to network with psychologists outside of Division 14.

    The deadline for submissions is December 2, 2019. We accept proposals in a variety of formats, including symposia, individual poster presentations, skill building sessions, and  conversation hours.

    We accept submissions across all content areas within Division 14, and encourage submissions from researchers as well as practitioners. Interdisciplinary submissions and submissions related to the future of Applied Psychology and the changing nature of work are particularly encouraged.

    If you have any questions about how you can contribute to Division 14’s programming at the 2020 APA Convention, please contact Malissa Clark by emailing clarkm@uga.edu. Submissions for all topic areas will be received through the official APA Convention website https://convention.apa.org  More information about this   Convention and requirements can be found at https://convention.apa.org/proposals or in the attached Call for Proposals.

    We look forward to receiving your submissions!

    Sincerely,

    The Committee on Division/APA Relations is pleased to announce its call for nominations for three-year terms, starting January 1, 2020.  Two positions are available.

     

    Each division is invited to submit one nomination for two January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2022 positions. Nominees should be past division executive officers or active division leaders with significant governance experience, including committee and task force chairs. The committee is always open to early career psychologist candidates who meet the criteria. 

     

    The mission and composition of the Committee on Division/APA Relations is described in Association Rule 90-6:

         There shall be a Committee on Division/APA Relations (CODAPAR) which shall be generally concerned with the mutual involvement of divisions and APA in fostering psychology as a science, as a profession, and as a means of promoting human welfare and shall: (1) serve an advisory function to the Division Services Office and Chief Executive Officer on the mutual implication and impact of activities of APA and divisions: (2) provide leadership to facilitate coordination and communication among divisions and between divisions and APA; (3) make proposals to enhance structural, functional, and policy relations between APA and divisions; (4) plan and host the Division Leadership Conference; (5) provide leadership in developing training programs for division officers at the Division Leadership Conference, the APA annual meeting, or other such forums, to enhance the functioning and benefits offered by divisions and the diversity of the Association's members; and (6) act as a facilitator in resolution of disputes among divisions.

         CODAPAR shall consist of six members, each serving a three year term, and shall report to Council through the Board of Directors. At least one member of CODAPAR shall be an early career psychologist. Two new members of CODAPAR will be appointed annually. Nominations will be solicited from divisions, with each division invited to submit a nominee for CODAPAR. Eligible nominees are APA members who are or have been divisional officers, board members or have had significant governance experience within or across divisions. Upon receipt of division nominations, CODAPAR will submit to the Board of Directors a listing of nominees along with its recommendation for achieving balance in representation of the broad interests of divisions as designated in defined slates. An additional goal shall be to achieve diversity among CODAPAR members by striving to obtain gender balance and at least one member from underrepresented groups. The Board of Directors will appoint two new members annually from the slates submitted by CODAPAR.

     

    Please acquaint your nominee with the time commitment associated with service on CODAPAR.  In recent years, CODAPAR has met in-person at least twice per year, and has undertaken other committee business through electronic meetings. The first in-person meeting takes place immediately before the Division Leadership Conference in January, and then CODAPAR members participate in the entire conference as presenters and facilitators.  The second meeting is held in conjunction with the Spring Consolidated Meetings.  CODAPAR sometimes meets at the APA Annual Convention (although this is not required). A fourth meeting was typically held in conjunction with the Fall Consolidated Meetings of APA committees, but in 2018 this work was managed through several electronic meetings held throughout fall. In addition, the committee will, on an ongoing basis, work virtually to handle projects related to its mission. 

     

    In keeping with APA’s implementation of electronic meetings for some meetings formerly held in-person, committee members should expect the following:

     

    1. Participate in at least two in-person meetings each year.
    2. Participate in at least one 60 minute virtual meeting each month (via Skype, conference call and/or another virtual meeting technology). This requires access to a computer with a modern web browser. Additionally, access to a computer with a webcam is preferred.
    3. Respond to email correspondence between in-person and virtual meetings.

     

    The APA Board of Directors appoints members to CODAPAR based on the slates recommended by the current committee.  CODAPAR makes every effort to select slates that reflect the full range of divisional interests and seeks nominations that will ensure representation of all divisions.  CODAPAR pays considerable attention to nominations that will ensure diverse representation on the Committee, including gender, sexual orientation, ethnic, racial and cultural minority status. 

     

    Divisions submitting a nomination should state the nominee’s particular qualifications and interest in the position on the Nomination Form and include a vita for your nominee.  Nominations are due to CODAPAR Staff Liaison, Christine Tipton, ctipton@apa.org no later than March 15, 2019.

    PTCMW Snapshot


    PTCMW is pleased to report another wonderful year in 2017, our 40th year offering professional development and networking opportunities for I/O professionals in the DC area and nationwide! We continued to have a healthy budget thanks to our supportive sponsors and member participation.  As a non-profit organization, our funds are always used to support new ventures and continue to bring in high quality speakers at our monthly events. Below is a snapshot of the health of our organization, followed by a summary of 2017 actuals and 2018 budget.


    2017 Actuals and 2018 Budget

    As shown below, PTCMW has planned a 2018 budget in line with the actuals from 2017. Note that—due to the comfortable amount that we have in assets ($47,204)—we have planned investments in our organization that result in a slight loss (in 2017 and 2018). We reevaluate this target each year.

    2017 Actuals

    In 2017 we continued hosting monthly events at McCormick and Schmick’s in Crystal City.  Our paid events tend to be a near break-even for the budget. In 2017 we also offered several events free to members, including a Speed Networking event and a joint PTCMW/SIOP Reception.

    The 2017 Graduate Student Consulting Competition, sponsored by PDRI, had yet again a strong showing of students working together to solve a real organizational challenge. The event provides participants with a realistic job preview, an expanded professional network, and an opportunity to enhance their communication and consulting skills.  We had 17 students register for the competition, working in teams to develop a proposal and presentation. We offered an award of $2,000 (split among the first and second place team members) and continue to be impressed with the caliber of our competitors each year – this money is well-deserved! The event sponsor covers meeting costs, therefore the only costs PTCMW incurs are the prize and the happy hour for participants.

    Our largest source of income (and expenses) each year is the Fall Event, and George Washington University continued to be a hospitable and convenient location. As has been the case each year, the event was a success, with an impressive panel of speakers, strong support from our sponsoring organizations (our largest sponsorship year to date!) and participating government agencies, and invaluable opportunities to network and win prizes. We even had an additional gold sponsor this year, which meant we handed out four iPads to lucky raffle winners.

    Other Income: Our largest membership gain during the year is during the fall, when we pair Fall Event registration with membership dues. However, we do have steady membership growth during the year, and this is a modest source of income for PTCMW.

    Other Costs: You may have noticed that in 2017 we made some website improvements in the name of rebranding and better organization of information. (Visit our site to see how they turned out! http://www.ptcmw.org/) In 2017, one of the membership benefits we offered was free entry, food, and drinks at our PTCMW 40th Anniversary member event. The event was a huge success, with nearly 100 attendees. We also incurred standard professional organization expenses such as our mailbox and Adobe Systems software for our newsletter. Lastly, PTCMW is thankful for our strong support from partners each year, and we continue to support these partnerships through contributions to conferences and awards. Currently, we contribute each year to the IPAC conference and Stephen E. Bemis Award.

    2018 Budget

    In 2018, we are expecting another strong year. We will continue to hold monthly meetings, with at least seven of those being paid. We also plan to hold one workshop event in the summer, which has a slightly higher registration cost due to the extended format. By periodically offering attendance/membership bundles, we aim to convert new faces into long-term members. We look forward to the same level of participation in the 2018 Graduate Student Consulting Competition, and will again reward the winning teams with a healthy prize of $2,000 to split. We have already begun initial planning for the 2018 Fall Event, and as always the event will include high quality presentations, food and beverages, and plenty of PTCMW gear to get you through the year. In 2018, we expect other recurring costs but have not planned any significant new expenses.

    Comments or Questions?

    Feel free to email me with any comments or questions about the budget at treasurer.ptcmw@gmail.com. We are always open to considering alternative event locations that may be even more convenient for members and cost-effective for PTCMW. If you have suggestions for event improvements, please email our Vice President, Gee Rege (vp.ptcmw@gmail.com). If your organization would like to partner with us on future monthly meetings or workshops, please reach out to me for more information on sponsorship opportunities.
