Dr. Sam Sterk’s “Hypnosis to Achieve The Mental Edge in Sports” presentation is an opportunity to learn specific intervention techniques that help athletes maintain
good Focus and Positive Self Talk.
The term “athletes” does not necessarily imply professional athletes but can be individuals who are involved in recreational sports. Sports Hypnosis in the Phoenix
Metro Area is a large relatively untapped market.

WE INVITE YOU TO
SERVE ASPH AS AN OFFICER
Nomination Time is Almost Here!
If you would like to serve ASPH as an officer or if you would like to
nominate an ASPH member to serve as an officer, please email us at
Below is information about the duties of each officer.
The President “steers the ship.” They check and double-check on their own and everyone else’s duties and responsibilities. The President must be familiar with every activity that each of the officers must perform in order to insure that the organization is running smoothly. This requires full knowledge and understanding of the Systems Manual. Use this manual as a map or blueprint.
From the By-Laws:
President - shall be the chief officer of the Society, shall sign all official documents that are authorized by the Society, shall preside at all meetings of the members and enforce order and a strict compliance with the Constitution and By-Laws, appoint the chairpersons of all Boards and Committees not otherwise provided for, be ex-officio member of all Boards and Committees and see that the officers perform their respective duties faithfully and impartially.
However, except for the Committee chairpersons, all appointments of committee members shall be made by the chairperson of said Committee.
While occupying the chair, the President shall take no part in debate.
The President shall also transact such other business as may by custom, pertain to that office. The President shall decide all points of law and order subject to appeal, which shall forthwith be considered by the Society.
The President by virtue of their office shall have no vote except to break a tie or deadlock.
The President shall perform all duties as outlined in the current ASPH Systems Manual for the Office of President.
The Vice-President is the backup for the President. Like the President, they are familiar with every activity that each of the officers must perform in order to insure that the organization is running smoothly. The Vice-President can easily step in and run the organization in the absence of the President. This requires full knowledge and understanding of the Systems Manual. Use this manual as a map or blueprint.
From the By-Laws:
Vice President - shall assist the President in the performance of their duties. In the absence of the President the duties of the office shall be performed by the Vice President and in the absence of the President and Vice President, their duties shall be performed by the Secretary.
The Vice President or Secretary when performing the duties of the President shall have no vote except to break a tie or deadlock.
If all three of these Officers are unable to attend a monthly meeting, the Executive Board shall re-schedule the date of the meeting at a time when one of these three officers can be in attendance.
The Vice President shall perform all duties as outlined in the current ASPH Systems Manual for the Office of Vice President.
The Secretary, like the President, checks and double-checks on their own and everyone else’s duties and responsibilities. This requires familiarity with every activity that each of the officers must perform in order to insure that the organization is running smoothly. Also, the Secretary should be fully capable of running the meeting and assuming any of the responsibilities for the other officers in case this becomes necessary. Use this manual as a map or blueprint.
From the By-Laws:
Secretary - shall keep a correct record of all transactions of each meeting of the Society and Board of Officers' meetings, and record the same in respective books to be known as the Book of Minutes.
The Secretary shall send a monthly newsletter to each member, containing current announcements and schedule of forthcoming Society meetings, Minutes from the previous Society meeting, the current Treasurer’s Report, and other information deemed to be of value to members.
The newsletter will be sent electronically (by email) and will be sent by post to those Society members who do not have email addresses. It is the responsibility of each Society member to deliver the most current email and/or postal address to the Secretary, who will send this information to the Treasurer.
The monthly newsletter shall be sent not less than five (5) days or more than twenty-five (25) days prior to the next meeting date.
The Secretary and Statutory Agent have access to the firstname.lastname@example.org email address at live.com where organization emails are sent and received. The Secretary shall liaise with Agent to keep the contact list of email addresses current.
The Secretary, Treasurer and Statutory Agent shall keep an accurate database of Society members, containing name, address, phone numbers, fax number, email address and URL address.
The Secretary is the contact person for all notices and announcements.
At the expiration of the Secretary's term of office, the Secretary shall give a correct report of the business of the office to the Society and deliver to the successor in said office all books and other property belonging to the Society in retiring Secretary's possession.
The Secretary shall perform all duties as outlined in the current ASPH Systems Manual for the Office of Secretary.
The Treasurer will be familiar with every activity that each of the officers performs. Also, they should be fully capable of running the meeting and assuming any of the responsibilities for the other officers in case this becomes necessary. This includes taking care of banking activities, i.e., depositing checks in the absence of the Statutory Agent after the Statutory Agent has endorsed the checks. This requires full knowledge and understanding of the Systems Manual. Use this manual as a map or blueprint.
From the By-Laws:
Treasurer - The Treasurer shall liaise with the Statutory Agent to solicit and invoice all members for their annual dues, keep an accurate account of all the monies received and expended, and liaise with the Secretary & Statutory Agent to keep the Membership Roster current.
The Treasurer shall secure the meeting place for monthly meetings as well as the December Holiday Party and liaise with the Statutory Agent for arranging monthly payments to the rental facility manager.
The Treasurer shall liaise with the Statutory Agent and Secretary to keep a database of paid members. This database will contain current member information concerning name, address, phone numbers, fax numbers, email address and URL address.
The Secretary, Treasurer and Statutory Agent shall confer and update this database on a monthly basis.
At the regular meeting held in December of each year, the Treasurer and/or Statutory Agent shall give to all other officers a correct account of all monies in the organization’s checking account, together with the books, papers and receipts belonging to that office. At any time when ordered by the Society, the Treasurer and/or Statutory Agent shall deliver all monies, books and receipts.
The Treasurer & Statutory Agent shall deliver to the successor in office all the books and other properties in said Treasurer's possession belonging to the Society. All disbursements made by the Treasurer from any monies held by Treasurer belonging to the Society shall be paid by check or the ASPH bank debit card.

The Treasurer shall perform all duties as outlined in the current ASPH Systems Manual for the Office of Treasurer.
