Chapter, Division, and Student Elections

Nominations for Component Elections

Are you interested in running for a Leadership position with Chapters, Divisions, or the Student Representatives Council? The call for nominations information will be posted soon.

Many chapter and division member newsletters and websites will contain information and announcements about the specific positions up for election this year. You can also contact your local Chapter President, or appropriate Division Chair, or member of the Student Representatives Council Executive Committee for more information about opportunities in APA component leadership.

All these positions require a 600-word (maximum) candidate statement, which is a combination of biographical background and a position statement of why you want to serve. Candidates for these offices can also upload an photograph (optional).

APA is committed to seeking a diverse group of leaders for the organization, including candidates which reflect diversity of experience and knowledge (practice setting, specialty); geography (regional distribution, rural and big city); race, age, gender, sexual orientation, culture, ethnicity, creed and belief (spiritual, political), and ability.
