Statement of Purpose:
I understand to take on this position is to put myself in service and ensure all the division admin tasks run smoothly, such as meeting minutes, communications/liaisons, budgets, and division initiatives, in accordance with the missions and visions of our division and of IPPA. I first joined IPPA in 2013 and I am still a member today, because positive psychology has become part of my life, and I am happy to contribute to this wonderful community of IPPA. I am flexible and patient. I have been taking part in the monthly division calls since April 2017 (as far as I remember) so I have an idea of what’s going on in our division. With my experience leading a team of 24 people at work, I am confident that I can be a perfect Secretary 🙂
