PRESIDENT’S UPDATE: I am writing to update SPSP members on the summer meeting of the SPSP Board of Directors, which was held on August 9-10 immediately following the APA convention in Toronto.  Most of our time was spent on details involving the work of the various committees that oversee the convention, the convention program, student members, publications, awards, diversity and climate, fellows, training, and so on, along with topics related to the SPSP administration and budget.  However, I want to mention two specific issues about which you may have questions.    
The leadership of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology Inc. has had extended conversations regarding the actions of APA that led to the findings in the Hoffman Report. Although SPSP is a separate organization than APA, we recognize that the public perception of psychology is contingent on the reputation of APA. The collusion and unethical actions by individuals involved in APA governance violate the values of SPSP and the ethical standards of the field of psychology.
