Representative Network

ECNPC Representative Network

In 2018, the Early Career Neuropsychologist Committee (ECNPC) established a national network of state-based early career representatives. The primary purpose of the Representative Program is to offer an opportunity for entry-level experience in national governance, with the aim of retaining and promoting talented, motivated individuals in both SCN and larger APA organizations. This program also allows members to take advantage of a more local resource to gain information and assistance in issues pertinent to early career including professional networking, mentorship and support, work-life integration, licensure and credentialing, and board certification in addition to a plethora of others.

ECNPC Representatives are allowed the flexibility and creativity to adapt their roles to state-level needs. As a representative, your role could include activities like setting up local meet-ups, facilitating mentee-mentor matches, liaising with your state psychological organization, alerting others to pertinent CE or other learning opportunities, and much more. Representatives, in turn, will benefit from resources and events geared specifically to their own needs – sponsored and hosted by the national ECNCP committee.


Becoming a Representative

The ECNPC Representative Program is only available for individuals of early career status. APA defines early career as the 10-year period after completing your doctorate degree. So, anytime from fellowship through the next ten years means you are an early career neuropsychologist. There are a few additional eligibility criteria to consider:
