Come to Liverpool, UK for the next ISPS international conference, August 30, 2017!
ISPS-US is pleased to announce the results of our officer election:
Jessica Arenella, PhD
Nancy Burke, PhD
Leah Rokeach, LCSW
Ron Abramson, MD
Congratulations to our new officers! They will take office on November 8.
The amendment question about whether to implement electronic voting in the next election was not able to be counted, because we did not receive ballots from 40% of eligible voters. We may have a special election between now and 2017 to revisit this question. For now we will continue to follow our bylaws, which require voting by mail.
Thanks to all members who participated in the election, and thanks to our current officers, Brian Koehler, Nancy Burke, Lori Kalman and K. Lowenthal, for their years of service
