Advisor Survey—Win Great Prizes!
Advisors, please complete our Fall Faculty Advisor Survey by October 31, 2014. This brief, 5- to 10-minute questionnaire lets us know which online features are helpful to you and if there is anything we can do to make your advisor efforts more efficient or easier to understand. All participants will be eligible to win one of two random giveaways of our Psi Chi Table Runner/Podium Banner (each a $75 value)!

Psi Chi Video Contest
Student members and faculty advisors are invited to submit creative videos of no more than 3 minutes that answer common questions about Psi Chi. View full instructions and submit HERE by November 3, 2014. Three $500 prizes will be awarded.

Recruiting Members in Three Easy Steps

  1. Identify eligible students via the campus registrar’s office, or ask all psychology students at your campus to apply online so you can accept the appropriate students later. Members of other psychology clubs are also a valuable source for potential members. Learn more about Psi Chi benefits HERE and specific membership requirements HERE.
  2. Invite members using a variety of tactics (e.g., e-mails, phone calls, posters, classroom announcements). Don’t forget to provide a hard deadline, and always follow up with prospective members just before that date to increase your response rate. View our Invitation to Membership template and Recruitment Guide on the Chapter Admin page for further support.
  3. Induct. After inviting students to apply online, visit View/Process Members on the Chapter Admin page. This allows you to (a) view and approve students, and (b) send "batches” of new members to the Central Office for processing after you receive their $55 lifetime membership fees. Our New Member Process Instructions PDF includes complete instructions for the online registration process.

Contact if you have any other questions about recruiting new members or our online recruitment system. An upcoming Digest will elaborate on hosting a successful induction ceremony.
