Your Dues at Work!


2011 SPTA of the Year Award is presented to Alaska on March 11, 2012. From left: Ali Mattu (APAGS Chair), Karen Ferguson (AK-PA President), Tonie Marie Quaintance (AK-PA Exec. Dir.), Peter Sheras (CAPP Chair), Andy Benjamin (Div 31 President)

On March 10th, APAGS brought its largest group of students ever (nineteen) to APA’s State Leadership Conference for a 4-day meeting, culminating with visits on the Hill with congressional delegations. We will have more on these visits soon. During the Awards Luncheon, APAGS presents an annual award to the State, Provincial or Territorial Psychological Association (SPTA) that has demonstrated a resounding commitment to student trainee development. The award is co-sponsored by the Committee for the Advancement of Psychological Practice (CAPP) and APA’s Division 31. The 2011 SPTA of the Year Award went to Alaska Psychological Association. They received $1500 to support future student-focused activities. Some of the highlights of their student activities:

- Students represent ¼ of their membership

- Students have two voting seats on the Board of Directors

- An APAGS representative is included on the Board of Directors

- Students serve on 9 of 10 committees in the association

- A doctoral student stepped in as interim Executive Director, and is now permanently in the role.

- AND this is a very small division, with only 115 members!
