Being an officer in SDPA is a great way to volunteer, further your professional development and network with other psychologists. The time commitment is manageable and officers will have the support of other executive committee members and the executive director. To remain viable, your association is in great need of additional board members. Please consider a self-nomination or of another member or eligible member with whom you have consulted. The Executive Committee meets most months, usually for one hour, and, generally via conference call. Additionally, we hold an in-person meeting, at the annual conference. Please ask any question you might have about being an officer or a member.
