There are a multitude of benefits of involvement in APA and neuropsychology governance at the national level. First of all, you get to see just how a national organization works from the inside out. You also get to participate in decisions and activities that yield a positive impact on your peers, colleagues, and the profession at large. Oftentimes, people find this experience to be both personally and professional rewarding!
Additional benefits of participation in national governance:
- A professional home and sense of community
- Development of a professional identity and sense of competence
- Interaction and networking with peers and professional mentors
- Access to information about training, education, and science
- Access to support and advocacy resources
Examples of possible SCN committee and subcommittee opportunities:
- Association of Neuropsychology Students and Trainees
- Early Career Neuropsychologist Committee
- Education Advisory Committee
- Women in Neuropsychology Committee
- Ethnic Minority Affairs Committee
Who is eligible to apply? This opportunity is currently limited only to graduate students, predoctoral interns, and early career neuropsychologists. Early career neuropsychologists include postdoctoral fellows and any other individuals who are within 10 years after completing their doctorate.
