Proposed Change in Doctoral Academic Program Membership Criteria:
This change would allow CAPIC membership to programs which offer Doctorate in Education (EdD) degrees, alongside our existing PsyD and PhD programs.  

The relevant section of our membership criteria is given below with the proposed addition highlighted and in bold

1. The psychology doctoral academic program: 

a. Meets the requirements outlined in Section 1386 of the California Board of Psychology Laws and Regulations or equivalent for the state or province in which the program is located, and meets one or more of the following criteria: 

i. is accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) 

ii. offers one of the following degrees: Psy D or PhD or EdD in either: a. clinical psychology b. counseling psychology c. school psychology b. and has existed for two consecutive years. c. and is offered by an institution that is regionally accredited, if not APA-accredited.   


–  This change is in keeping with Section 1386 of the California Board of Psychology Laws and Regulations, which already allows for students from EdD programs to seek licensure. 
–  This change is meant to broaden the number of programs (and therefore students) which are able to participate in the CAPIC internship match. 
–  EdD programs would need to meet all other CAPIC membership requirements for doctoral academic programs.  The full, current doctoral academic membership criteria is publicly posted here on our website.
–  No other criteria changes are proposed at this time, although a separate discussion is ongoing with our regionally-accredited doctoral academic program members.
–  Per our CAPIC bylaws, changes to program membership criteria require a majority approval of voting programs to take effect. 

Vote by online survey (integrated with the election ballot). 


Active CAPIC Member programs (Doctoral Academic, Internship & Postdoctoral) are authorized one ballot/vote each. 

–         Only one person per Active Member program may cast a vote.  Inactive programs are not eligible to vote.
–         Program members determine for themselves who will act as their official representative, and training or field placement directors may designate another staff member to submit their program’s ballot. 

·        If multiple votes from the same program are submitted, the CAPIC office will communicate with the program to ensure only the proper ballot is counted.
·        If you represent multiple CAPIC Programs (e.g. an Internship and a Postdoc Program), they are considered separately, and each is entitled to one vote. 

–         The CAPIC office will then remove any identifying info, tally the votes, and submit the election results to the CAPIC Board for certification.

·  In the first week of July, the CAPIC office will compile the results and have them certified by the Board Secretary. 
–  In the second week of July, the CAPIC office will announce the election results. 

·        The term for newly elected Board members will start on July 1, 2019.

·        The first Board meeting of the new term will then be Sept 20th and 21st at TCSPP-LA in Los Angeles.
