Dear EFPSA Community,
The Board is excited to announce the Call for members of the EFPSA Working Community* to join ten of the Working Groups of the European Federation of Psychologists’ Associations (EFPA).
As an Associate Member of EFPA, EFPSA is privileged to be able to submit nominations on behalf of individuals to join one of many EFPA Working Groups (Boards & Standing Committees) that are dealing with different topics which are in the peak of interest of many psychologists and students, as well. The mandate for this position will last for 2 years (one year of the current mandate and 1 year of the next mandate; so 2021-2023) and it is a unique opportunity to gain professional experience, network among professionals, and contribute to EFPSA and EFPA at the same time.
What is EFPA?
The European Federation of Psychologists’ Associations (EFPA) is the leading Federation of National Psychology Associations. It provides a forum for European cooperation in a wide range of fields of academic training, psychology practice and research.
EFPSA has been an Associate Member of EFPA since June 2001. Through this cooperation, European psychology students can be a part of EFPA Boards, Standing committees, Task Forces, and Working Groups. Representatives of EFPSA (typically the President) visit the most important meetings of the EFPA, including General Assemblies and the Presidents’ Council meeting, bringing EFPSA the possibility to provide their input to developing different fields of psychology in Europe and the work of EFPA.
EFPA Working Groups
Following the EFPA General Assembly of July 2013, the EFPA Executive Council invited their Associate Members to make nominations for the Boards, Standing Committees and Task Forces of EFPA. As such EFPSA can make nominations on behalf of European psychology students who wish to fulfil these positions.
The following Working Groups are currently open to join as an EFPSA Representative:
- Board of Ethics
- Board of Assessment
- Board of Educational Affairs
- Board of Scientific Affairs
- Board of Cultural and Ethical Diversity
- Board of Promotion and Prevention
- Standing Committee on Crisis & Disaster and Traumer
- Standing Committee on Work and Organisational Psychology
- Standing Committee on Geropsychology
- Standing Committee on Psychology in Education
Who can apply?
Please note that only individuals who either currently hold a position during the mandate 2021-2022, or have held the position during the 2020-2021 mandate within EFPSA on the Executive Board or as a Member Representative may apply for a nomination to the EFPA Working Group.
Should you have already worked as an EFPSA Representative in EFPA in the last mandate (meaning your mandate ends in 2021), you are also eligible to apply for one more mandate.
As EFPSA Representative in EFPA, you will receive support and information from EFPSA on a regular basis, which could prove to be useful for your position.
If you are interested, please complete this application form. The deadline for applications for these positions is Thursday, 21st October at 23:59 (CEST).
Applications after this deadline will not be accepted. Please ensure that your application is received by this time. If you have any questions about this Call or the EFPA Working Groups, please address them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applicants will be interviewed by our President and Human Resources Responsible – we will let you know about time of the interview as soon as the applications close.
