SUBMIT NOMINATION

The Colorado Psychological Association (CPA) is seeking nominations for four open Board positions. We are asking our members to nominate your colleagues to help shape the future of our State association and the industry. 

Please nominate yourself and your colleagues by Friday April, 29.  I will reach out to all nominees (and nominations are confidential) to discuss what the Board position entails and ensure their interest and consent in being included on the ballot. 

All that we ask of you at this time is to send us names and email addresses of esteemed psychologists who can strengthen the voice of psychology across the state.  You can access the CPA online membership directory by logging into your CPA account on the CPA website and clicking on the View Member Directory or Member Search links on your profile page. You can learn more about the organization’s governance and the specific responsibilities of the board of directors by viewing the CPA bylaws. If you want more information about the positions or the process, please contact Erin Baurle at [email protected].

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is a guiding pillar of CPA's strategic plan and mission. We are invested in expanding the representativeness of CPA leadership – especially across racial/ethnic diversity, LGBTQIA+ individuals, job roles, and career levels.
