2009 NATIONAL LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE
Psi Chi is hosting its second National Leadership Conference (NLC) on January 2-4, 2009, in Nashville, TN. The goal of the NLC is to develop and enhance participants' leadership skills and their impact on the field of psychology. Registration ends September 30th at 8:00 pm EST online. No paper applications will be accepted for conference registration. Learn more about the conference, keynote speakers Drs. Betty Siegel and Alice Eagly, the program, and more.
For the 2008-09 fiscal year, the chapter notebook is now available to chapters online. In an effort to be more environmentally friendly, the National Office will not send each chapter paper versions of all of the forms for the notebook. If a chapter needs an electronic copy of the forms, the National Office will mail a copy of the forms on CD.
The most recent versions of all Psi Chi forms are always available on the Psi Chi website.
ONLINE CALL FOR NIOMINATIONS FOR PSI CHI
The call for nominations for the 2009-10 National Council will be done electronically through the Psi Chi website. On November 1, Psi Chi will email all chapters a Call for Nominations for Psi Chi National Officers. A link to the nomination form will be provided and handled through your chapter's administrator login. Nominations will be accepted for President-Elect and Vice-President for three regions (Eastern, Rocky Mountain, and Western).
All chapters may submit a nominee for President-Elect from the list of candidates who qualify for this position by having served at least two 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 (Eastern, Rocky Mountain, and Western) 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 and a description of why you chose the individual to represent your region. 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.
