HumRRO is pleased to announce that research scientists, Samantha Elliott, Ph.D., and Emily Rost, Ph.D., were elected as officers of the Personnel Testing Council of Metropolitan Washington (PTCMW) for 2023. Elliott will serve as Recorder for the second year in a row, and Rost will become the organization’s Vice President.
Founded 45 years ago to provide professional development and networking opportunities to industrial-organizational (I-O) psychologists in the Washington, D.C., area, PTCMW is now one of the largest and most active regional I-O professional groups in the world.
As Recorder, Elliott compiles and reports all information related to Board activities and manages PTCMW’s social media accounts. “I am honored to serve on the PTCMW Board because the organization facilitates networking, idea sharing, and knowledge and skill growth for its members,” said Elliott. “These are all necessary activities for community building and innovation to occur. This year, it is my goal to expand our social media presence, which will hopefully increase our reach and impact.”
As PTCMW Vice President, Rost will be responsible for identifying speakers and producing monthly luncheon programs on topics relevant to members as well as serve as a member of the Board.
“It is an honor to serve in this role to provide networking opportunities and new learning experiences to the members of our field,” said Rost. “As a recent graduate, I have quickly realized the massive presence of I-O psychologists in the Metropolitan Washington, D.C., area. My goal is to plan inclusive events that encourage new and experienced members to connect.”
