As stated in the Constitution, only active fellows and fellow emeriti can vote on issues relating to certification standards, ethical principles, and professional standards.

Active fellow status requires current AASP membership and attendance at an AASP conference within the last three years. Failure to meet these criteria will result in inactive fellow status.
