The Division members, via email vote, overwhelmingly approved proposed changes to our bylaws in May 2014. These changes were proposed mainly as a means of expediting the membership process and were drafted by our membership chair, Dustin Stairs, Ph.D. The changes allow individuals who are joining APA via the new online membership portal to simultaneously request to become a member of Division 28. To be consistent with the membership requirements for APA, the new bylaws have also redefined the requirements for being a Member and Associate Member of the Division to include a doctoral degree in psychology or a substantially related field. This latter change does not impact student or other types of affiliate members. An updated copy of the bylaws will be posted to the Division 28 website. If you have additional questions about the changes or would like a full text copy of the bylaws, please email me at email@example.com.
