IAAP Officers and Board of Directors (2022-2026)

The constitution of IAAP identifies the governance of the association in article 3: "The Board of Directors, broadly representative of the membership, determines Association policies and has final authority over the affairs of the Association. The Board of Officers, which serves as the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors, administers the operations of the Association under the oversight of the Board of Directors".

Article 7 provides further details: "The Board of Directors shall have final authority over the affairs and funds of the Association. Members of the Board of Directors must be Full Members in good standing. The President of the Student Division shall serve ex officio on the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors shall consist of the Officers of the Association, President, the President Elect, the Past President, the Secretary General, the Treasurer, and any additional officers approved by the Board of Directors; the Presidents and Presidents-Elect of the Divisions; and not less than 24 and not more than 45 Members-at-large".

On a regular basis election to the Board of Directors occurs every four years at the start of every International Congress of Applied Psychology and exceptionally during the meeting held during International Congresses of Psychology sponsored by the IUPsyS.
