The Board of Directors of the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback invites AAPB members to submit nominations for potential candidates to serve on the AAPB Board of Directors. The Nominations Committee will consider all submissions and prepare a slate of candidates based on the information that you provide and other candidate recruitment activities. The Nominations Committee is chaired by the immediate Past President, Dr. Jeffrey Bolek. He and the committee are pleased to offer this open call for nominations. SELF NOMINATIONS ARE ENCOURAGED!
The Board consists of the President, the President-Elect, the Immediate Past President, the Treasurer and five additional Board members at-large, all of whom are required to be regular members in good standing of the AAPB.
