[DIV28M] Proposed changes to membership bylaws- please review

Greetings Division 28 Members,

Attached to this email you will find the existing Division bylaws (April
2013) and a set of revised Division bylaws (May 2014) with two changes
proposed. The changes are highlighted in yellow for you to review. The
proposed changes are related to the new online portal through which
individuals can apply for APA membership. The first change would allow
persons signing up as an APA member to choose to become a member of
Division 28 at the time of APA membership enrollment, with dues being
collected from them at that time. The proposed member would only become a
division member if they meet the requirements of becoming an APA member;
therefore the second change is that the requirements for being a Member
and Associate Member of Division 28 include a doctoral degree in
psychology or a substantially related field, which would make our Division
requirements consistent with existing APA membership requirements.

Please consider adopting the proposed changes to Division 28 bylaws.
Please review these changes and respond to me (kdunn9@jhmi.edu),
indicating your vote ("Yes" or "No") in the spaces provided below for each
of the proposed changes by Friday, May 30, 2014.

Allowing Division 28 membership to be directly available through the
online membership portal: ______

Change in requirement for Members/Associate Members to have a doctoral
degree in psychology or a substantially related field: _____

Kind regards,
Kelly Dunn
