  • Proposed revisions to society bylaws are approved.

  • The terms of the past president, current president, president-elect, and members of the Board of Trustees are extended by 1 year.

We are happy to announce that the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has now formally accepted our application to be reclassified as a 501c3 nonprofit organization. One important consequence of this reclassification is that donations to the Psychometric Society are now tax deductible.
