Governance
Share |

The Psychonomic Society (PS) is a membership-based organization governed by a rotating body of Governing Board members who are supported by full-time professional staff and management support company run by the PS Executive Director. The Governing Board serves as the board of directors for the Society and is responsible for the business, organizational and legal affairs of the Society as well as ensuring that all programs and activities are in accordance with the Society's mission and strategic goals. Psychonomic Society staff manage the day-to-day aspects of the organization, partnering with the Governing Board to implement the strategic plan. Members of the Governing Board also serve as chairs on Society committees. Members who volunteer on committees, serve as editors and reviewers, or who participate in meeting presentations and posters, all play a crucial role in strengthening the Society for the future.

The primary leaders of the Psychonomic Society are the members of the Executive Committee (Chair, Past Chair, and Chair-elect of the Governing Board) and the Executive Director who leads the staff.
