Four days to go and the best guess on how many proxies we need to win the NO vote is 850. We are currently at 500 proxies plus 100 expected votes at the meetings. So at 600 it means we need to get another 250 proxies.
With over 15,000 non-clinical members in the APS – surely we can do it. Look at how much momentum has grown in the past few week – at last everyone is pulling together to create change.
In the past two days we have received over 100 proxies. Now we have four days to get another 250. It’s a stretch – but it’s POSSIBLE!
Can we do it? Are we prepared to pull out all stops and go for it? Are we ready to make history and reclaim our society?
It only needs each one of us to get one more person to sign a proxy or vote, send at least one email to friends and colleagues, have one more conversation, etc., etc.
We have set up a Reform APS PowerPoint explaining the potential issues with the governance concerns. Please look at it and send it to other members. You can download it here.
More (courageous) members come out publicly to support RAPS – the list has grown to over 30 in the past few days. We are no longer “in the shadows”! You can download it here.
It’s become an enormous joint effort by dedicated members. It’s heartwarming to see this support – and we just need a few more days of it 🙂
If the governance resolutions are passed, non-clinical psychologists can say goodbye to the APS ever representing the interests of the majority of its members. The new structure will end the power of APS members to directly elect their representatives.
We must stop the changes before the spill takes place – so we can elect a new board to properly represent us and conduct a new truly independent governance review .
