75TH ANNIVERSARY OF PSI CHI
Once again, the year 2004 is the 75th anniversary of Psi Chi. Please join Psi Chi as we celebrate this special anniversary at all regional and national (APA and APS) conventions. View the Psi Chi programs for 75th anniversary details at the convention you'll be attending here:
ANNUAL & FINANCIAL REPORTS DUE
Chapters are reminded that they must file the Chapter Annual Report and Chapter Financial Report each year by June 30. Why the early reminder? Since some chapters report their academic year ending in late April or early May, chapters are being given plenty of time to file these reports. These reports may be filed online (after logging in as a chapter administrator) or a hard copy may be mailed or faxed.

Each year, the National Office receives feedback from its chapters about chapter officers from one academic year graduating and not ensuring a smooth transition to the incoming set of next year's officers. So, if your chapter hasn't already done so, be sure to elect next year's officers for your chapter now. Also, make sure that the current officers share transitional information (such as chapter financial records and chapter e-mail account information) and apprise the new officers of their responsibilities and duties.
