Volume 43 Number 13 page 25-25

The APA Nominating Committee is accepting recommendations for candidates for the member-in-training trustee-elect (MITTE) position for APA's 2009 election.

Each year an MITTE is elected by APA members-in-training and serves on the Board for one year without a vote. At the end of that year, the MITTE advances to member-in-training trustee (MITT) and serves on the Board for one year with a vote.

The resident elected in the 2009 election will serve as MITTE from May 2009 to May 2010, and as MITT from May 2010 to May 2011.

Residents must be APA members-in-training when recommended for the position; that is, they must have been accepted as APA members in both APA and their district branch. They must be in their PGY-2 or PGY-3 year in the summer of 2008.

Moreover, nominees must have written permission from their training directors to fulfill the two-year commitment as MITTE and MITT as a part of their training.

The Nominating Committee may consider the following in its deliberations: APA/DB activities; activity/work in psychiatry/medicine; previous organizational experience (need not be medically or psychiatrically oriented); grass-roots community experience, medical and nonmedical training; research and publications; prior "life experience," such as training or a job in another field; previous career; unusual background; and leadership roles that show vision and creativity.

Information about the MITTE/MITT positions, eligibility criteria, and a submission form are posted on APA's Web site at<http://new.psych.org/Resources/Governance/MITTEForm.aspx>. The form to be signed by the resident's training director can be downloaded from<www.psych.org/Resources/Governance/2009DirectororChairForm.aspx>.

Nomination materials must be received by August 8. Items should be sent to Carolyn B. Robinowitz, M.D., Chair, APA Nominating Committee, APA, 1000 Wilson Boulevard, Suite 1825, Arlington, Va. 22209; Attn: Chanda Brooks. They can also be faxed to (703) 907-7852 or e-mailed to cbrooks@psych.org.
