APA members who would like to be nominated for APA president-elect in 2012 — and serve as the association’s 2014 president — are invited to submit a statement of 50 words or less. The statement will accompany the online nomination ballot. Please note that statements are optional and not required in order to be nominated.

The deadline for potential candidates to submit a statement is Jan. 16.

The 50-word limit will be strictly enforced. Interested candidates are also welcome to speak to the Council of Representatives at its meeting Feb. 24–26, in Washington, D.C., and are responsible for their own transportation and lodging costs.

The nomination election will be conducted online and will begin Feb. 1, with a 45-day balloting period. For more information, contact Garnett Coad of APA’s Governance Office at (202) 336- 6087 or via email.
