Thank you for your support: Todd Finnerty for APA PresidentTodd Elliott Finnerty, Psy.D. was nominated by his peers to be one of the 5 candidates to run for APA President-elect in 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2017. Thank you! I appreciate your support.
Here are some of the things I've written for the current and past APA President-elect Campaigns
2017 Campaign for APA President-electWhile some people label me a "single-issue" candidate, over the years my statements have addressed more issues than the other candidates (and I've actually told you my opinions about them). You know where I stand.
2016 (Dr. Finnerty was not a presidential candidate)In 2016 Dr. Finnerty was not nominated as one of the 5 candidates chosen to run for APA president-elect. However, some positive events happened. The VA finally changed their policy and allowed the hiring of some psychologists who didn't have APA-accredited internships if they were board certified. Dr. Finnerty wrote a letter critical of APA's non-coverage of this in the APA Monitor which was ultimately published in January, 2017. You can learn more about the coverage on my blog here.

2014 Presidential Campaign
2013... What happened in 2013?
Dr. Finnerty was not nominated to run for president in 2013. Unfortunately, in August, 2013 the APA Council passed this resolution despite Dr. Finnerty advocating against it. Then, in February, 2014 it passed Health Service Psychology: Preparing Competent Practitioners
Dr. Finnerty wrote a National Psychologist article before the August COR meeting which was published just after. He also had a letter to the editor published in the APA Monitor.
2012 Presidential CampaignIn 2012 Dr. Finnerty began his advocacy for all psychologists and also wrote about his positions on a number of other topics as well. He stood up in front of the APA Council of Representatives and urged them to support all psychologists.
