The MPA Nominating and Governance Committee is seeking nominations for the APA Council Representative for Massachusetts. The current APA Council Representative, Dr. Eugene D'Angelo, Ph.D., ABPP, has decided not to run for a second term due to competing commitments. Council is the legislative body of APA, and has fiduciary responsibility for APA's affairs and funds. Therefore, Council Representatives are required to focus on APA's viability and ability to serve the members and the public. The elected Representative will begin serving on January 1, 2019 for a three year term.
Members of MPA who are also APA Members, Fellows, or Voting Associate Members are eligible to nominate and to be nominated for the APA Council Representative seat. Nominees should have significant governance experience (for instance having sat on the MPA Board of Directors) and be ready to commit  significant time and energy to the role. There are two main meetings per year, lasting for 3 days each, one in February in Washington and one at the time and place of the Annual Convention.  
Representatives are expected to read materials in preparation for meetings and to be fully engaged in Council Meetings. They also respond to emails throughout the year, and participate in Caucus meetings depending on their interest and affinity. Finally, our Council Representative sits on the MPA Board of Directors with all attendant duties and responsibilities. 
Please think about individuals who meet the criteria and who have demonstrated the capacity to function at a high level. They should be comfortable in public speaking and willing to participate in a political process with divergent viewpoints and agendas. The MPA Nominating and Governance Committee will review nominations received and will submit at least 2 nominees to the Board, for their review. The final slate will be forwarded to APA, who will administer the election. Please click here for the nomination form.
