ACEPT Subcommittees

Student Executive Board

The student committee is comprised of student representatives from various programs throughout the Chicago land area.  The purpose of this committee is to gather the opinions of students about current ACEPT processes and provisions, as well as ideas about how ACEPT can best serve the student bodies.  Members are asked to reach out to their respective student bodies to gather a general understanding of student opinions, needs, and ideas about the role of ACEPT in their training and professional development.  The inclusion of this committee allows for the dissemination and inclusion of student perspective that is of integral importance to the purpose and objective of ACEPT.  Students are encouraged to contact their respective representative or the ACEPT Student Executive Board Chair with any feedback.


Membership Committee

The Membership Committee is responsible for maintaining updated contact information for all ACEPT members, assisting current and potential members with membership questions, and reaching out to potential ACEPT members to discuss the benefits of ACEPT membership.  Joining the Membership Committee is a great way to get more involved with ACEPT while getting to know colleagues!  If you are interested in joining the Membership Committee, please email Anne Kubal, PhD at [email protected].


Bylaws Committee

The Bylaws Committee is responsible for articulating ACEPT’s organizational mission, vision, policies, and procedures. Where policies and procedures do not exist, the committee drafts wording to address the issue ahead of approval by the board. Joining the Bylaws Committee provides you the opportunity to network with colleagues who share your passion for best practices in clinical training.  If you are interested in joining the Bylaws Committee and help enhance ACEPTs mission, please email Paul Cantz, PsyD, ABPP at [email protected].


Professional Development Committee

The Professional Development Committee is responsible for coordination of the annual ACEPT conference and the professional development speakers at the ACEPT quarterly meetings.   These programs provide professional development opportunities while earning CE credits. In addition, this committee coordinates the details of the annual ACEPT practicum fair, and strives to strengthen the relationships between students, training sites, and academic programs through educational activities that serve the broader training community.  If you are interested in joining the Professional Development Committee, please email Mary Grigar, Ph.D. at [email protected] or Eunice Kim, Psy.D., [email protected].


Guidelines Committee

The Guidelines Committee is responsible for evaluating and amending ACEPT’s guidelines for the Doctoral level practicum match process.  Joining the Guidelines Committee provides you the opportunity to network with colleagues who share your passion for training, while also having influence on how the match process is carried out.  The goal of ACEPT’s match guidelines is to strike a fair balance between advocating for students’ training needs throughout the match process, while also considering the organizational needs of schools, sites, and supervisors.  Although the Guidelines committee for the 2013-2014 match is already established and convening, if you would like to join the committee for future match years, please email Michelle Emerick, PsyD at [email protected]
