Introducing Psi Beta’s National Council for 2016-2017

Psi Beta [1] is governed by its National Council [2]. Each council member teaches psychology at a regionally accredited, AA-degree granting institution. Each Council member also advises an active Psi Beta chapter. The council consists of 6 regional Vice-Presidents, each of whom assists chapters in his or her geographic region (i.e., West, Rocky Mountain, Southwest, Midwest, Southeast, and East), and a President, Past-President, and President-Elect. Professors of psychology can win a seat on the Council by running for an open Vice-Presidential position in his or her region. Seats on Psi Beta’s National Council are confirmed by a voting process (each active chapter has a vote). Some Vice-Presidents eventually enter the presidential cycle (President-Elect, National President, Past-President).
