Members are the heart and soul of SIOP and are greatly appreciated for their interest and contributions. An impressive list of distinguished members has been with the Society for 25 years or more. To recognize the contributions and loyalty of these dedicated members, SIOP has developed an initiative called the Sterling Circle. Sterling Circle members are honored in several ways and can be identified at SIOP events with a special ribbon on their badges. Learn more about the Sterling Circle here.

M. Susan Taylor
As for SIOP, I go back to the time when SIOP was Division 14 of APA. My association as a member and later a Fellow has been continuous since circa 1970. Having served as a member and chair of committees like Program, Fellowship and Training and for an edition of the Personnel Selection Principles, I was the beneficiary of the values and wisdom of SIOP colleagues, which fostered my scientific and professional growth, not to mention my competency as a manager and administrator. I must mention by name Ray Katzell, Herb Meyer, Joe Weitz, Irv Goldstein, Ben Schneider, Wally Borman, Frank Landy, Rich Klimoski, Wayne Cascio, Milt and Lee Hakel, Frank Schmidt, and Neal Schmitt as SIOP mentors and role models. SIOP has provided a forum for the presentation, criticism and discussion of my and my students' research over many years. SIOP conferences have been instrumental in providing me with much content for lifelong learning. SIOP has truly been a key element in any success I have enjoyed as an I-O psychologist.

The life blood of any organization lies in attracting new members who bring a special enthusiasm and interest. Membership in SIOP is growing, and we take great pleasure in welcoming our newest members. They comprise a wonderful mix of former Student Affiliates upgrading to full membership and professionals, including those who previously were Associate members and International Affiliates. SIOP looks forward to these new members’ participation on committees and conferences as they experience the value of membership in the premier organization for industrial and organizational psychologists.

New “Associate Path to Membership” Member*: Jessica Merten
Being an active SIOP member is a strong professional value that was instilled in me as a graduate student. In a real way, SIOP helped raise me as a professional. Reading TIP, attending the doctoral consortium, presenting at annual conferences, and networking with luminaries in the field were essential developmental opportunities that SIOP membership offered. The generosity of SIOP members with their time and encouragement early in my career connected me to the I-O science and practice community, established SIOP as my professional home, and inspired me to give back. I’ve enjoyed sharing SIOP with my own students, who have benefitted in innumerable ways. Among professional organizations, SIOP stands out as something special. In SIOP, there is a common thread of dedication connecting generations of I-Os. We have remarkably talented members who work tirelessly to develop I-O psychologists and to promote the field of I-O psychology.
