Division 42 Committee Chairs

Please consider volunteering for one of our committees or projects, and contact the chair of the group(s) in which you are interested. Most tasks do not take up much time, and committee involvement is a great way to acquire in-depth perspectives on issues affecting psychological practice.

You will probably make new friends, too!  😀

About the Membership Committee for APA Division 42

The Membership Committee is formed to recruit and support membership of the Division by:

  • Keeping track of membership trends
  • Making suggestions to the BOD regarding membership categories
  • Establishing goals and initiating activities for increasing membership growth and fostering membership retention.
  • Identifying diverse membership needs
  • Making recommendations to the board and finance committee for changes in membership dues
  • Proposing new benefits and initiating activities to engage members
  • Conducting periodic membership surveys, as deemed appropriate, regarding membership needs and membership satisfaction
  • Providing a mechanism for welcoming new members to the Division

The Committee is fortunate to have a dynamic and dedicated membership. Presently, the group is working on two main projects:

  • Division 42 has many programs that focus on Early Career Psychologists, including an ECP committee and Mentorshoppe Program.  In collaboration with the Marketing and Public Communications Committee and with APA staff, Membership is presently focusing on retention and recruitment of Mid-Career Psychologists. Short surveys will be sent to three distinct Mid-Career Groups in January: former 42 members, new 42 members, and current long-term members. The results of these surveys will assist 42 to adapt programs and services geared to mid-career members, to recruit leaders from this cohort and to provide CE that will meet their specific needs.
  • The Committee is also in the midst of a joint Membership Marketing Project with APA. APA will assign in-house experts in graphic design and marketing to develop an email and print campaign for us. If this is successful, it can be expanded within APA. We have completed an initial data gathering phase and will focus on subsequent segments of the project in 2018.

If you are interested in working on this committee, contact Judith Patterson, Chair, at drjpatterson@yahoo.com
