CALL FOR 2017 LACPA AWARDS NOMINATIONS

 

 

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: April 3, 2017

 

Since 1991, LACPA has been privileged to honor individuals for their accomplishments in various areas. These awards are presented at LACPA’s annual convention. The Board of Directors voted in 2007 to make the nominations for these awards more inclusive by extending the invitation to all LACPA members to submit candidates for these prestigious presentations.  


Please Note: The current LACPA Executive Committee (Beth Leedham, Ph.D.; Lisa Osborn, Psy.D.; Lynne Steinman, Ph.D.; Evelyn Pechter, Psy.D.; Kenneth Skale, Psy.D. and Leticia Amick, Ph.D.) are excluded from being recipients of an award this year due to a conflict of interest.

 

Please list your nominee and award category and describe what your candidate(s) has accomplished which would merit such a distinction; you may nominate yourself. Please note the goal is to honor individuals based on the breadth and depth of their accomplishments, not just because a person is well liked. LACPA does not present all of the awards every year but only when there is significant accomplishment to warrant a particular award. Please be certain to include your name and contact information; anonymous submissions cannot be accepted.  Also if your nominee is chosen you will be given the task to write the bio for the Convention Day Program.
