Has Your Chapter Voted Yet?
Voting for the Psi Chi Board of Directors and Constitution Changes closes March 15, 2015. Personal statements and biographies are available for this year’s President-Elect candidates, as well as the Vice-President candidates for the Eastern, Rocky Mountain, and Western regions (Chapters may only vote for the Vice-President candidates in their respective regions). For the proposed Constitution, members may view letters of support and opposition, a side-by-side structural comparison, and a summary of the changes.
These two opportunities to help shape the future of Psi Chi will be over before you know it! If your chapter has not already voted, please do so immediately.
Lifetime Membership Reminder
Your students are not considered Psi Chi members until the Central Office receives their one lifetime membership payment. If you have pending or approved students in our View/Process Members system on the Faculty Advisor Admin Page, please log in, complete the checkout procedure, and send payment on their behalf as soon as possible. Your students will then receive their personal login for psichi.org, be eligible for Psi Chi awards and grants, have access to Psi Chi’s private LinkedIn® Group, and more.
Attending and Presenting at Conventions
Tell your students to visit our new educational resource about Attending and Presenting at Conventions. These webpages include step-by-step instructions and advice from experienced professionals. Links to Psi Chi programming and convention presentation specifications for all of our regional and national conventions are also provided. Specific pages that your students will benefit from include
• Tips for Attending Conventions
• Poster Pointers, Templates, and Samples
• Your Poster Checklist
• Paper Presentations
Our new partner, TherapySites, is offering a free webinar series, titled “Educational Webinar Madness,” beginning March 11 through April 8, 2015, at 1 p.m. CST. They are suiting up for 40 minutes of education and will use all their timeouts at the end for a live Q&A session. Get your front row seat to these free events HERE.
