It is time to start thinking about regional conferences. This year there are even more opportunities for Psi Chi members to participate in regional conferences. At the Spring 2010 regional conferences, there will be leadership and diversity programming, great poster sessions that will spotlight the research of our members, and an opportunity to celebrate Psi Chi's 80 years!
Recently, I was talking to my niece who is a psychology student at East Tennessee State University and asked her if she was planning on attending SEPA. Her response was "I don't know." I have another relative who is a psychology student at Iowa State and she has similar thoughts about attending MPA. This leads me to believe that the opportunities that await students at conferences are not being conveyed. Let me tell all of you why you should take advantage of attending a regional or local conference.
Regional and local conferences provide the Opportunity to
- meet and speak with other Psi Chi members and faculty from other institutions,
- learn about research being completed around the country,
- present your research in a poster or paper session,
- and winâ€”did you know that Psi Chi awards research poster winners with a recognition certificate and cash prize?
Please mark your calendar and plan to attend one of our sessions.
