2020 IAAP ELECTIONS

DIVISION 6

Call for Nominations for Division President-Elect

In 2020, IAAP members in good standing of Division 6 (i.e., 2020 membership dues paid) will be invited to elect a new Division President-Elect who will assume the presidency of Division 6 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 6 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).

Call for Nominations

As Chair of the Elections Committee for Division 6, I have the pleasure of asking members of Division 6 to submit names of candidates for the office of President-Elect of Division 6 in keeping with the Rules of Procedure for the Elections of IAAP Division Presidents-Elect and Other Officers (as adopted by the Board of Directors of IAAP on July 26, 2016).

The deadline to submit nominations for the position of Division President-Elect is the 30th of June 2020 at 11:59 PM (New York City time).

Furthermore, one must have been a member of the Division in which they run for President-Elect for the last two years (i.e., during the year preceding the election and the year during which the election takes place).

Please note that Division members in good standing with IAAP cannot be nominated for President-Elect of a Division in which they are nationals or residents of the same country as the Division President. The current President of Division 6 is from the United States of America.
