Continuing Education Committee Terms Beginning 2014

The Continuing Education Committee (CEC) seeks nominations for four new members to begin three-year terms on Jan. 1, 2014. Nominations are accepted from individuals, APA committees, boards and divisions, as well as self-nominations.

The deadline for submission is Aug. 31, 2013.

As defined in APA’s Association Rules, the committee develops policy and program recommendations for the association’s continuing education (CE) program, working collaboratively with the Office of CE Sponsor Approval and the Office of Continuing Education in Psychology. The committee’s tasks include, but are not limited to:

  • Providing review of all sponsors and organizations seeking APA sponsor approval.

  • Collaborating with organizations that want to become APA-approved sponsors.

  • Identifying, promoting, implementing and evaluating research, development and innovations in CE.

  • Review prospective convention CE workshops and CE sessions.

The committee seeks to assemble a professionally and culturally diverse group of psychologists. It encourages nominations from individuals committed to life-long learning and is specifically looking for individuals with expertise in cognitive, military/veterans, technology, addictions, media, forensic and serious mental illness. Early career psychologists are also encouraged to submit nominations. CEC is committed to maintaining a diverse and broad representative from all groups and areas of psychology; and particularly seeking individuals representing the following: women, minorities, sexual orientation and geographical diversity. 

Members are required to attend two three-to-four day committee meetings each year in the D.C. area with expenses reimbursed by APA. Members also work on committee projects between meetings and will be expected to participate in committee conference calls and mailing list discussions. In addition, CEC members are encouraged to attend related events at the APA Annual Convention if possible — though expenses cannot be reimbursed for convention activities.

Each nomination packet must include:
  • A letter indicating willingness to serve on the CEC.

  • Curriculum vitae.

The deadline for submission is Aug. 31, 2013. 

Please send all nomination and supporting materials to the Office of CE Sponsor Approval. If you have any questions, contact Cathi Grus at (202) 336-5691.
