Psi Chi T-Shirt Caption Contest!
We are developing a new T-shirt design, but we need your help! Like our Facebook
to submit your ideas for a T-shirt caption to be featured on the new design. Ideas
for captions can include anything psychology related. Once all submissions have
been received (deadline is Jan. 20), the Central Office will choose our three favorites
and have the members vote for the winner on our Facebook page from January 23-30.
The winning chapter or chapter member will receive 10 free T-shirts in sizes requested
by the winner. Only Psi Chi members are eligible to win!
Let Us Know Your Chapter’s Leadership Needs
We encourage all members to let us know what you and your chapter need in terms
of leadership information, training, and advice. Psi Chi is committed to enhancing
members’ leadership skills through programming at the six regional conventions.

Call for Papers: Toward a Global Psychology Conference
Faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students working in the field of international
and cross-cultural psychology are invited to submit papers for possible presentation.
A portion of accepted submissions and presentations will also be invited for inclusion
in an upcoming scholarly volume tentatively titled “International Psychology in
War and Peace.” Presentation proposals (300 word abstracts, or full papers) are
due by 5pm Friday, March 9, 2012 to
email@example.com. Submissions should be in MSWord or RTF format
and must include the following: Author name(s) and affiliation(s), address, email
and phone number of key presenter, and name of faculty mentor (if any). For additional
details, contact Conference Chairperson Jennifer Lancaster at
firstname.lastname@example.org or Uwe P. Gielen (Institute for International
and Cross-Cultural Psychology, SFC) at email@example.com.
The April 12-14, 2012 conference will be held in Brooklyn Heights, New York City.
Extended Submission Deadline for APA/Division 52 Student Posters
The APA Division 52 (International Psychology) planning committee is pleased to
announce that we have extended the deadline for STUDENT poster submissions for the
Division 52 Annual APA conference Orlando, Fla., Aug. 2-5, 2012 up through Wednesday
December 21, midnight EST. This extension is valid only for posters, not papers
or symposia. Because this date extends beyond the APA deadline, please submit the
abstract (100 words) and summary (up to 1000 words) directly to
firstname.lastname@example.org along with the following:
• authors’ names,
• email address of presenting author,
• highest degrees of each author,
• APA status of each author,
• department affiliations of each author,
• contact information of presenting author, and
• APAGS membership of first author (may be entitled to free registration).
