VI. Organization of the APA

A. The Board voted to approve forwarding the following minute and motion to the Council of Representatives at its February 24-26, 2012, meeting:

The Board of Directors and representatives from the four National Ethnic Minority Psychological Associations (NEMPAs) have been working to increase collaboration among APA and the NEMPAs. The Board met with representatives of the associations at the Board's June and August 2011 meetings and APA plans to sign a Miorandum of Understanding with each of the associations. The Board of Directors was asked by representatives of three of the associations (Asian American Psychological Association, the National Latina/o Psychological Association and the Society of Indian Psychologists) to support sending forward to Council a request that it approve forwarding to the Membership in 2012 a Bylaw ballot on Seating the Four Ethnic Minority Psychological Associations on the Council of Representatives.

The Board recommends that the original Bylaw language (included in the first two Bylaw ballots) be forwarded to Council for consideration at its February 2012 meeting. Although the Board has concerns related to resending the Bylaw ballot, including the possibility of the Bylaw ballot failing for a third time and the repercussions of another failed vote, the Board also values APA's long-standing commitment to diversity within governance and efforts to address past grievances and inequities. After carefully weighing these issues, the Board decided that in the spirit of partnership and collaboration with the NEMPAs, it should support their request to move this item forward to Council.

In addition to the ballot issue, the Board is committed to continuing to build and extend APA's partnerships with the iPAs through numerous joint projects and other types of information and resource exchanges.

Specifically, the Board recommends that Council approve the following motions:

1) Council approves forwarding the following Bylaw amendments to the Membership for a vote in November 2012:

Article V. Composition of the Council of Representatives

1. Council shall be composed of Representatives of Divisions, Representatives of State, [and] Provincial, and Territorial Psychological Associations, members of the Board of Directors, the Officers of the Association (the chief staff officer shall serve without vote), [and] the APAGS Representative and one Representative from each National Ethnic Minority Psychological Association (the Asian American Psychological Association, the Association of Black Psychologists, the National Latina/o Psychological Association, and the Society of Indian Psychologists).

5. Council Representatives of a Division [or], a State/Provincial/Territorial Association or the Asian American Psychological Association, the Association of Black Psychologists, the National Latina/o Psychological Association, and the Society of Indian Psychologists shall be members of [the Division or State/Provincial/Territorial Association] their respective constituencies and Members of the Association, and shall be elected for a period not to exceed three years. If during that three-year period the Division or State/Provincial/Territorial Association is allocated fewer seats, the Division or State/Provincial/Territorial Association shall recall the appropriate number of Representatives. The term of office of the recalled member is thereby terminated.

6. Each APA Fellow, Member, and voting Associate member shall choose the Division(s) or State/Provincial/Territorial Association(s) through which he/she elected to have his/her interest represented on Council by allocating, at the time of the annual dues statient, a total of ten (10) votes to the Division(s) and/or State/Provincial/Territorial Association(s) through which he/she wishes to be represented the following year. However, only Fellows, Members (or voting Associate members) of the Divisions or State/Provincial/Territorial Associations so designated will be allowed to nominate and elect their Council Representatives. The Representatives of each of the National Ethnic Minority Psychological Associations shall be designated by their respective Association.

8. A Council member who has served for six consecutive years shall not be eligible for election or appointment for a period of one year as a Representative from any Division, State/Provincial/Territorial Association, National Ethnic Minority Psychological Association, or coalition.

2) Council approves amending the Association Rules as follows:

40-1. Election and Procedures for Council Representatives

40-1.11 Unless it is an ex officio appointment, there shall be at least two nominees on the final election ballot for each office of Council representative from divisions or state/provincial/territorial psychological associations.

40-1.12 Names of candidates running for Council seats from divisions or state/provincial/territorial psychological associations must be submitted to the APA Election Committee before March 15 of the year in which the election is held.

40-1.13 National Ethnic Minority Psychological Associations must advise Central Office of the name of their representative by June 30 of the year preceding the start of the Council term.

3) Recognizing Council's longstanding commitment to the value and importance of ensuring diverse representation and voices in governance, should changes be recommended in the structure and/or composition of Council as a result of the Good Governance Project, Council urges that such recommendations reflect consideration of inclusion of diverse voting voices, including those of the National Ethnic Minority Psychological Associations.

VIII. Convention Affairs

A.(7) The Board voted to approve the following changes to the Board Designation of Net Assets-Convention:

1) The use of accumulated convention designated funds riaining after BCA's allocation each year for convention infrastructure and member experience enhancients;

2) A one-time transfer $400,000 from the Board Designation of Net Assets — Convention (projected balance of $849,486 as of Deciber 2011) to create a new Board Designation of Net Assets from the existing accumulated balance to fund mission critical work in the web and IT departments;

3) A change to the Designation of Net Assets — Convention Policy as follows (bracketed material to be deleted; underlined material to be added):

[At the request of the Finance Committee (FC), BCA was asked to develop a policy related to the designation that the BOD approved in support of convention-related activities1. This] In 2006, the BoD established a designated fund to enhance the convention [-related designation represents] made up of 25% of the total annual real estate tax abatient that APA was granted by the DC government1. In exchange for the tax abatient, APA agreed to hold its annual convention in DC every third year. Each year an amount not to exceed $250,000 is allocated to the Board of Convention Affairs (BCA) to enhance that year's convention. To offset the potentially negative impact of holding the convention in the same location so frequently, a higher proportion of the fund would be available to BCA in DC years. Accordingly, BCA developed the following proposed policy during its [spring] fall 20[06] 11 consolidated meeting:

Allocation: BCA recommends that their portion of the tax abatient be utilized as follows: [1) 60% of the tax abatient allocated each year be designated for the APA conventions that are to be held in Washington, DC every three years; 2) 40] 70% of the annual allocation is [each year be] designated to enhance conventions [during those years when the convention is not] held outside of [in] Washington, DC with the riaining 30% held in reserve. In DC years, 100% of the allocation is available and is combined with the amount held in reserve from the two preceding years.On the recommendation of the CEO and the approval of the BOD, these allocation percentages may be modified periodically due to special circumstances and/or unforeseen events which may adversely impact attendance . [or other aspects of a specific convention.]

Uses: Potential uses of these funds may include but are not limited to special activities and services, reductions in fees, and enhanced programming with the goal of augmenting the convention experience, resulting in increased attendance and attendee retention.

Administration: The application of this policy will be guided by the recommendations of BCA and the CEO with final approval by the BOD. The CEO and [COO] DCEO will provide substantive reports to the BOD as appropriate; annual financial reports will be provided in all future budget documents by the CFO.

1 The BOD Designation of Net Assets related to convention represents 25% of the total real estate tax abatient granted by the DC government. On the recommendation of the FC, the BOD & COR voted to allocate the real estate tax abatient as follows: APA operating budget- 50%, BOD Designation of Net Assets for Convention - 25%, and APA Undesignated Net Assets -25%.


B.(8) The Board voted to approve the use of the 2012 Abatient Funds for enhancing the annual convention in Orlando, Florida , as recommended by the Board of Convention Affairs, as follows: 1) $10,000 — Registration fee assistance to APA international affiliates from developing countries (as defined by the World Bank) to be administered by the APA International Affairs Office; 2) $15,000 —Continuation of a successful and much appreciated effort to provide financial assistance to ECPs and Young Scientists to attend the convention; 3) $75,000 — Evening Event at Epcot or Sea World; 4) $20,000 — Bus transportation to the Disney parks; 5) $20,000 — Digital Photo Booth; 6) $10,000 — Welcoming Characters in Convention Center; 7) $15,000 — Speed Mentoring Event; 8) $10,000 — Family Room in Convention Center.

IX. Educational Affairs

A.(9) The Board voted to recommend that Council approve amending Association Rule 120-1.1 and forwarding to the membership for a vote an amendment to Article XI of the APA Bylaws (underlined material to be added):

Association Rule 120-1.1

The Board of Educational Affairs shall consist of not fewer than twelve members, one of which may be an APA Teacher Affiliate member, four to be elected each year for a term of three years. Each of three seats on BEA shall be filled by nominees from among the constituencies of Science, and Public Interest, respectively, in a manner that is consistent with APA procedures for the election of standing board members. Nominations for slates will be solicited from the appropriate APA governance groups (BSA, CAPP/BPA, BAPPI). These positions shall be for staggered three-year terms, with one of these three positions being filled each year. Each year the constituency group whose seat would be vacated shall be requested to provide a pool of at least five nominees for a three-year term. All other seats shall be filled according to Association Rule 110.15 in a manner to represent the Board of Educational Affairs' commitment to each level of education and training in psychology, from pre-college and undergraduate through postdoctoral. All twelve members are fully participating, voting members of the Board of Educational Affairs.

Article XI: Boards and Committees

The Board of Educational Affairs shall consist of not fewer than twelve Members of the Association, one of which may be an APA Teacher Affiliate member, who shall serve for terms of not less than three years each. It shall have general concern for all educational and training affairs which transcend more than one Division or group of psychologists. Members of the Board of Educational Affairs shall be selected to represent the range of interests characteristic of psychology in all its aspects.

B.(10) The Board of Directors reviewed the request for additional funding for a new Task Force on Strategies for Training Psychologists for Multi-Disciplinary Team Science. The Board was enthusiastic about the development of more initiatives related to this topic within the strategic plan. Given the constraints of the 2012 budget, additional funding was not recommended. However, President-Elect Johnson decided to use funds from her presidential funds to enhance currently budgeted funds within the strategic plan initiatives in this area. The Board recommended that these funds be used to focus on a clearly defined project in this area in 2012 and asked President-elect Johnson to come back to the Board with information on specific funding amounts. The specific recommendation is to form an inter-organizational work group in 2012 to address the barriers posed by promotion, tenure, and employment policies in acadiia in advancing psychologists' participation in interdisciplinary team science — one of the major tasks suggested by the task force report. The Board expressed its appreciation for the efforts of the Task Force on Psychologists to Participate in Multi-Disciplinary Team Science Involving Other STi Disciplines in developing its report.

C.(11) Due to the time sensitive nature, importance of the issues and a compelling careful analysis, the Board of Directors voted to take iergency action and on behalf of Council approve APA's endorsient of the guidelines for higher education Assuring Quality, Accounting for Learning: Guidelines for Gathering and Reporting Evidence of Student Learning and Using It To Improve Outcomes.

B.(26) The Board voted to recommend that Council adopt the following resolution as APA policy: 

Resolution on Combination Biomedical and Behavioral Approaches to Optimize HIV Prevention

WHEREAS recent findings from the CAPRISA 004 trials (Karim et al. 2010) (women receiving tenofovir gel were 39% less likely to contract HIV than those receiving placebo), the Pre-exposure Prophylaxis Initiative (iPrEx) trials (Grant et al. 2010) (HIV-negative gay men given Truvada had 44% lower infection rates than men given placebo), and the HPTN 052 trials (NIAID, 2011) (HIV+ individuals initiating ART decreased transmission rates to sexual partners by 96%) clearly establish the importance of biomedical approaches to HIV prevention, they do not justify decreased focus or funding for behavioral prevention strategies; and,

WHEREAS these recent biomedical studies represent significant breakthroughs, combination approaches to prevention of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) that are comprised of both biomedical and psychosocial components work best for optimizing health outcomes (Coates et al. 2008; Piot et al. 2008); and,

WHEREAS the success of biomedical interventions is dependent on behavioral factors affecting medication adherence and treatment uptake (i.e., treatment acceptability and use) (Weiss et al. 2008); and,

WHEREAS the efficacy of the CAPRISA, iPrEX, and HTPN 052 studies were optimized by behavioral approaches (Karim et al. 2010; Grant et al. 2010; NIAID, 2011); and,

WHEREAS women in the CAPRISA study who accessed the adherence counseling program and used the gel most regularly had an HIV infection rate that was 54% lower than controls while those with low adherence had an HIV infection rate that was only 28% lower than controls (Karim et al. 2010); and,

WHEREAS treatment adherence played a central role in the iPrEX study as evidenced by the fact that 91 percent of the men assigned to the treatment group who later tested positive for HIV had no detectable levels of Truvada in their bloodstream (Grant et al. 2010); and,

WHEREAS behavioral approaches played a central role in the HTPN 052 study (NIAID, 2011) in which all participants were given HIV care that included safe sex counseling; and,

WHEREAS biomedical interventions for HIV and other STIs without combined behavioral approaches have shown suboptimal medication adherence and treatment uptake { e.g., 80 percent of women do not receive medication to prevent HIV Parent to Child transmission (Timerman et al. 2003); 80 percent of uncircumcised Zambian males have expressed no interest in considering circumcision as an HIV risk reduction option (Weiss, 2011); only 27 percent of drug users in need of the Hepatitis B vaccine completed the required three dose regimen (McGregor et al. 2003); and only 28.2% of young women at a clinic who were offered the human papillomavirus vaccine accepted and of those who accepted only 55.7% completed all three required doses (Moore, et al. 2010)}; and,

WHEREAS medication adherence and treatment uptake of biomedical interventions can be addressed by behavioral interventions that enhance knowledge and build skills while incorporating attention to factors such as age, socioeconomic status, religious beliefs, chronic or acute health conditions and disability, developmental understanding, cognitive impairment, race, immigration history and status, language, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, family context, culture, stigma, mental health, substance abuse, attitudes, prior knowledge, etc.(Liebowitz et al., 2011; Underhill et al., 2011); and,

WHEREAS policy and recommendations have yet to be established as to whether biomedical interventions for HIV prevention will be viewed as life-long or as short-term solutions for high-risk individuals (Paltiel et al., 2009); and,

WHEREAS successful behavioral engagient in biomedical prevention models may be out of reach for certain populations (e.g., human trafficking victims, sex workers, people living in poverty, children, etc.) necessitating the development of concurrent models that can be accessed by multiple at-risk populations (Bowleg, Neilands & Choi, 2008); and,

THEREFORE behavioral research is needed to optimize medication adherence and treatment uptake, to document real-world decision making processes associated with biomedical interventions, and to better understand the possible unintended and/or undesired consequences of biomedical interventions; and,

THEREFORE HIV/STI prevention research teams of the future must bridge biomedical and behavioral approaches and develop new combination approaches that consider biological, cognitive, attitudinal, affective, behavioral, gender, familial, developmental, cultural, educational, social, racial, linguistic, socioeconomic, religious, and environmental factors ((Fisher et al., 2010; National Institutes of Health Research Teams of the Future, 2011); and,

THEREFORE funding should be increased for HIV prevention research that incorporates mental health, substance abuse, behavior change, and adherence strategies to optimize the health outcomes of biomedical strategies with special attention paid to the development of combination prevention interventions that can be accessed by multiple at-risk populations; and,

THEREFORE Congress, the executive branch, state and local governments, and non-governmental organizations should promote public policies that increase support for multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary training, practice, and research; and

THEREFORE psychology should continue to be mobilized to conduct research on strategies for improving health outcomes based on behavioral optimization of biomedical approaches to HIV/STI prevention and to continue basic and applied research to identify and dissiinate effective universal and selective prevention strategies.
