As you know there is an upcoming election for President-Elect of APA. Division 19 EXCOM has weighed the five candidates and has formally endorsed Dr. Jennifer Kelly.
In looking at the candidates, she has a history of supporting Division 19 and the EXCOM believes that she will continue to be an advocate for military psychology. She is currently also endorsed by Divisions 31 (State, Provincial and Territorial Association Affairs - SPTA), 38 (Health Psychology), 44 (Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity) and 45 (Psychological Study of Culture, Ethnicity and Race). **Two other Divisions have weighed in - Divisions 17 (Counseling Psychology) and 29 (Psychotherapy) have endorsed Dr. Chin.
Obviously, do your own recon of the candidates. Three are active twitter users (Dr. Kelly, @JFK4APA; Dr. Chin, @JeanLauChin and Dr. Whitbourne, @swhitbo) so it is easy to see what they are thinking in real time. All will be featured in various public forums via APA and we will direct you to these statements as they come out. More to follow regarding the APA election.
