2020 IAAP ELECTIONS

DIVISION 18

Call for Nominations for Division President-Elect

In 2020, IAAP members in good standing of Division 18 (i.e., 2020 membership dues paid) will be invited to elect a new Division President-Elect who will assume the presidency of Division 18 at the end of the International Congress of Applied Psychology (ICAP) to be held in Beijing on July 24-29, 2022.

The election will take place between July 10 and August 9, 2020 if the call for nominations for Division President-Elect yields one eligible nomination or more by June 30. If it does not, then, a second call for nominations for Division President-Elect will be launched, and the election will take place between September 3 and October 1, 2020. In either case, the election will be conducted through online voting, using software designed to ensure accurate, secure, closed voting.

The IAAP member who is elected President-Elect of Division 18 will serve as Division President-Elect until the 2022 ICAP and then proceeds to serve as Division President for four years (2022-2026) and Division Past President for two years (2026-2028).
