CENTRAL OFFICE SCHEDULE
The Psi Chi Central Office is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. (EST). During the week of November 23-27, 2009, the staff will be providing limited services to chapters. A staff member will respond to inquiries made during this time period by Friday, December 4.
CALL FOR NOMINATIONS EMAILED TO CHAPTERS
The call for nominations for the 2010-11 Board of Directors is available electronically through the Psi Chi website (https://www.psichi.org/ChapterAdmin/nominate.aspx). The link can be accessed through your chapter's administrator login. Nominations will be accepted for President-Elect and Vice-President for three regions (Southeastern, Southwestern, and Midwestern).
All chapters may submit a nominee for President-Elect from the list of candidates who qualify for this position by having served at least 2 years within the last 10 years as a regional vice-president. The list of eligible candidates will be sent with the call for nominations. Each chapter may nominate one candidate from this list for the President-Elect position. Each nomination must be accompanied by two statements from the candidate. Nominations must be submitted by December 15 in order to be counted as valid.
In addition to President-Elect, chapters in three regions (Southeastern, Southwestern and Midwestern) may nominate an actively involved Psi Chi faculty advisor for the vice-president position in their region. Please include the email address of the candidate. After completing the form online, an email will be sent to your candidates acknowledging their acceptance of the nomination and requesting position and biographical statements. Nominees will then submit this information by December 15. On or before February 1, election ballot information regarding the candidates for Psi Chi's Board of Directors and how to vote online will be sent to all Psi Chi chapters.
The Nomination/Election Committee considers the qualifications of all candidates for office and proposes at least one nominee for each office to be filled.
