MPA Elections (2022)

Nominations for the 2022 election were held in January and February of 2022. Elections are scheduled to be held sometime in the early to middle of March. All members, current as of now or as of the last meeting, are eligible to vote and will receive a ballot.

This is the page about MPA elections! Each year, MPA members in good standing as of the last meeting are eligible to vote for President Elect and for an MPA Council member. Below we outline the duties of the positions:

Council Member is a three year term that begins after the 2022 Conference ends.  Council Members attend the Wednesday evening Council dinner and meeting to discuss the health and direction of the Council. They are involved in the selection of the MPA Graduate Student Diversity Travel Awards.

President-Elect is a one year position that will run from 2022-2023. The President Elect will then serve as the President of MPA for the 2023-2024 year. They then serve as past President for the 2024-2025 years. They are involved in the selection of MPA Fellows as well as inviting the Presidential Keynote speakers for the conference. 

It is vital to the health of the organization that skilled, committed psychologists serve in these leadership positions.
