Southeastern Regional Fall Letter
 

Dear Psi Chi members,


I hope this message finds you well. It has been my pleasure to serve you this past year, and I look forward to working with you the rest of this year—wishing you a great semester! Please join me in welcoming and thanking the members of our 2017–18 regional steering committee: Dr. Shannon Dobson (North Greenville University), Dr. Alicia Briganti (Dalton State College), Dr. Gina Mariano (Troy University), Dr. Jenny Mason (Cumberland University), Nicholas Lee (graduate student at The Citadel Graduate College), and Kevin Gustafson (undergraduate student at Charleston Southern University).


Just for your information, the 2018 SEPA convention will be March 6–9 in Charleston, SC.
Registration for SEPA is available at http://www.sepaonline.com/annualmeeting-info.htm. Undergraduate researchers still have until November 18, 2017, to submit their work to the CEPO/Psi Chi Undergraduate Poster Session at SEPA. The submission process has been streamlined to one, simpler online application. Here’s the link: https://app.smarterselect.com/programs/41187-Psi-Chi--Regionals-

We will be organizing social events for students as well as the annual appreciation luncheon for our faculty advisors at SEPA. If you have any suggestions, please e-mail me or Facebook message me. We are posting a lot on our Facebook page—please join and check often: https://www.facebook.com/groups/661683827208932/


If you are at SEPA, stop by our exhibit booth to say hello and join us at our Psi Chi programs. You can go to our website to review a tentative schedule HERE.

Faculty members who are interested in becoming more engaged with Psi Chi, consider volunteering for next year’s Steering Committee. Just message me and let me know you’re interested. We also can always use help at the booth—stop by and volunteer.

If you are a department chair, or know a department chair (please share), consider joining the Association for Heads of Departments of Psychology. See the link at http://www.ahdp.info/

Check out the many awards and grants that are available to Psi Chi members. Nominate your leaders, faculty advisor, and chapter!

Travel grants are available to help Psi Chi student members attend SEPA and other professional conferences. We have recently streamlined the travel grant application for SEPA and have increased the available funds!

Check out and/or submit to our two organizational publications: the Psi Chi Journal of Psychological Research and Eye on Psi Chi.

The Give Back to Psi Chi campaign is currently underway. Check out the campaign and watch the video message from our 2017–18 Give Back to Psi Chi Chair Dr. Nadine Kaslow.
