The President-Elect Chairs the Nominations and Elections Committee and oversees the nomination and election process for elected positions within the Executive Committee; and fulfills the duties of the President in the case of absence, death, incapacity, or resignation. The term of the President-Elect shall be one year, after which he/she shall serve one year as President and one year as immediate Past President.
Members-at-Large shall represent constituents within the division; act as spokespersons on behalf of these constituents; and perform such duties as may properly be assigned them by the President with the approval of the Executive Committee of the Division; and serve as a member of the Executive Committee for a period of three years.
The APA DIV 19 Council Representative serves on the APA Council of Representatives.

This is a three year term as an APA Council Representative.
In addition to the duties briefly described above, persons elected to these positions are expected to attend Executive Committee meetings. The Executive Committee meets each year during the APA Annual Convention.
