Dear Psi Chi members,
I hope you are excited about WPA. I think we’ve got a great lineup for the Psi Chi program, and don’t miss the food at the Leadership Symposium. I’ve listed the schedule below.
On Saturday at 2 p.m., please join us at the Chapter Exchange for refreshments and a trivia contest. It is always great to see what chapters are doing, so bring slides with pictures to share. Contact me if you would like to make a 5-minute presentation.
This year, Psi Chi will have a booth at WPA. Please stop by and visit with us to learn about more opportunities that Psi Chi can offer. In the meantime, visit the Awards and Grants page at http://www.psichi.org/?page=awards to learn about upcoming award opportunities and deadlines. Also be sure to check out opportunities to participate in crowdsourcing science at http://www.psichi.org/?page=Res_Opps.
If you have a Facebook account, please join the Psi Chi Western Region Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/285213828208384/. The goal is to build a stronger community across the region among Psi Chi chapters. Perhaps we will recognize some FB friends in other chapters at the Chapter Exchange session at WPA this year.
