Councils

APA's 13 councils and their committees were established by the Board of Trustees to implement APA's objectives. APA’s councils and committees are together known as components. Members of these APA components provide their expertise in the development of APA policy and resources for our membership and the profession.

Serve on an APA Component

Nominations are now closed for the 2021-2022 Presidential appointments cycle.

APA's many accomplishments are made possible through the generosity of members' time, energy and expertise. About one-third of the positions on all APA's councils and committees are open for appointment by the President-Elect each year. While members who currently serve on a Component may be eligible for reappointment at the end of their term, any potential reappointment is at the President-elect's discretion. All appointments will begin effective May 25, 2022.

The deadline to submit nominations was September 1, 2021. For questions, please contact appointments@psych.org.
