Help for divisions

APA staff and members of the Committee on Division/APA Relations are here to help divisions and division leaders.

Updated January 2014

As officers of divisions change from year to year, maintaining a list of resources to contact for help can be a challenge. In addition, as the challenges that divisions face from year to year change, it's helpful to know where to turn for help.

Each division has been assigned an account manager within the Division Services office. Members and officers of divisions can turn to this representative to ask questions, seek help, and get referred to other resources within APA that can provide support (legal, elections, finance, directorates, advocacy, etc.).

In addition, the Committee on Division/APA Relations is one of APA's standing committees made up of six APA members who have extensive background in division leadership. This group can help with problems, brainstorming ideas, and referrals to other resources within APA.
