Eye on Psi Chi: Spring 2009

Inside This Issue
Lisa Mantooth, Executive Officer and Chief Operations Officer

The spring issue of Eye on Psi Chi has some great articles and important information for our members and chapters. Psi Chi is honored to have an article from Kathy Blau, Zeno Franco, and Dr. Philip Zimbardo regarding their research on heroism. It is a very fascinating subject and one I think you will enjoy. Another great contribution to this issue is the article on the Psych Follies. I hope you will take advantage of the suggestions in this article. This is a great way for Psi Chi chapters to include a little fun in meetings and activities.

Psi Chi has two constitutional amendments that are being submitted to chapters for a vote. Each amendment is important to the organization as a whole. Please hold a chapter meeting to inform your members about these two amendments and determine how your chapter will cast its vote on each of these amendments.

It is also time to vote for the position of National President-Elect of Psi Chi. At your next meeting, appoint a member to inform your chapter about the individuals who have been nominated for this important position. Also, if your chapter is located in the Eastern, Rocky Mountain, or Western Region, your chapter will have an opportunity to vote for a regional Vice-President.

Each Psi Chi chapter will submit its vote regarding the constitutional amendments and the elections electronically. Chapters will receive the Email Digest with instructions of how to vote electronically through the Psi Chi website. The election will be held beginning February 1 and ending March 15, 2009.

Finally, I would like to personally thank each member of the 2009 National Leadership Conference (NLC) Program Committee—Drs. Susan Krauss Whitbourne (chair), Regan Gurung, Kate Marsland, and Ken Weaver—for their exceptional leadership in planning the 2009 NLC. I would also like to thank all of the participants who were able to take time out of their holiday schedules to attend the conference. I have received a lot of helpful and positive feedback from the NLC participants. If you were not able to attend, please take a moment and review the article from the Program Committee.

I wish each of you a very successful spring 2009!

Lisa Mantooth is a veteran of nonprofit management leaving a position as executive director of the American Red Cross—Hiwassee Chapter to join the Psi Chi National Office. She is very excited about her future with Psi Chi stating, "I feel that my entire career has led up to the responsibility of this position. I look forward to my future here, but I am also very cognizant of the history and the women, such as Ruth Cousins, who have left their invaluable mark on Psi Chi.”

Lisa received her bachelor of science degree from Tusculum College (TN) in organizational management and has an MBA from Regis University (CO). Aside from her professional life, she is married to Chris Mantooth and they have two active sons—Byron and Spencer.

Very community minded, Mrs. Mantooth is President-Elect of Bradley Sunrise Rotary Club where Habitat for Humanity and Angel Flight are the service projects. She feels that the Rotary motto, "Service above Self,” epitomizes her professional and personal life.
