CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
I. In September 2017, the terms of five current PAP Board Members will expire. In the September 2017 PAP election, five positions will be open for PAP board members, who will serve from 2017-2020.
We are inviting PAP members to nominate candidates for these five board positions. The nominees must be currently registered Psychologists and/or Psychometricians with at least 10 years of experience, at least 3 years relevant supervisory experience, and willing to serve from September 2017 to September 2020.
In practice, the PAP limits the representation of each organization (i.e. university/college, company, etc.) to three board members at any given point in time. This practice was put in place to ensure that the board represents as many different organizations as possible. Please check with your nominee’s organization if they already meet this limit.
The PAP also aspires to have more board members from organizations and institutions based outside Metro Manila. Nominees from other regions of the country are most welcome.
Any member of the PAP (Affiliate, Associate, or Fellow) may nominate a candidate. The nomination needs to be sent via email to: olaregala [at] gmail.com and pap_1962_08 [at] yahoo.com, starting May 15, 2017 until August 22, 2017, 12:00 noon. The subject line of the email should indicate “NOMINATION FOR PAP BOARD.”
All nominations should include the following:
(a) bio-data of the nominee in 100 words or less;
(b) statement of what the nominee plans to contribute to the PAP (e.g., PAP activities he/she plans to work on, new projects he/she will propose) in 100 words or less, and
(c) recent photo of the nominee (head shot only please) in jpeg format.
Self-nominations are welcome. Incomplete nomination materials will not be accepted. Bio-data and statements that go beyond 100 words will automatically be cut by the Committee on Elections after exactly 100 words.
Only Associates, Fellows and Regular members of the PAP who have paid their 2017-2018 membership dues as of May 31, 2017 are eligible to vote.

1) Assessment, 2) Clinical, 3) Counseling, 4) Developmental, 5) Industrial/Organizational, 6) Social, and 7) Educational Psychology Divisions.
- PAP Special Interest Groups (SIG) will also have elections for Chairperson of the 1) Teaching, 2) MHPSS, 3) LGBT and 4) Sports and Exercise Psychology SIGs.
