Composition of the Council of Representatives: Report on the Apportionment Ballot for Representation Year 2010
American Psychologist, v64 n5 p493-497 2009
Each year, the apportionment ballot is used to determine how many representatives each division and state, provincial, and territorial association will have on the Council of Representatives. The system is described in Article V, Sections 6 and 7, of the American Psychological Association (APA) "Bylaws". Briefly, all APA fellows, members, and voting associates are sent an apportionment ballot on or before November 1. Voting members indicate the division(s) and/or state, provincial, and territorial association(s) through which they desire to have their interests represented on Council in the following year by allocating a total of 10 votes to one or more of these groups. This article presents a table of the number of Council seats held by divisions and the number held by state, provincial, and territorial associations for the period 1980-2010. The results of the 2008 apportionment ballot for Council year 2010 are also provided. (Contains 2 tables.)
