Volume 42 Number 13 page 32-32

The APA Nominating Committee is accepting recommendations for candidates for the member-in-training trustee-elect (MITTE) position for APA's 2008 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 2008 election will serve as MITTE from May 2008 to May 2009, and as MITT from May 2009 to May 2010.

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 this summer.

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.

Information about the MITTE/MITT positions, eligibility criteria, and submission forms are posted on APA's Web site at<www.psych.org/edu/res_fellows/rf/mitte.cfm>. There are additional links to the contact and demographic form, which can be submitted online, at<www.psych.org/edu/res_fellows/mitnominees.cfm>. The form to be signed by the resident's training director can be downloaded from<www.psych.org/edu/res_fellows/MITTEdirector_chairform.pdf>.

Nomination materials must be received by August 3. Items not submitted online should be sent to Pedro Ruiz, 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.
