CONTACTING PSI CHI CHAPTERS: USAGE POLICY
As the proliferation of spam and unsolicited e-mails continues, Psi Chi e-mail addresses have proven not to be immune to such invasion. In fact, several solicitations (that were not approved by Psi Chi) directed at Psi Chi chapters and members have been forwarded to the National Office's attention. Please review Psi Chi's usage guidelines regarding contacting Psi Chi chapters.

Chapters should appoint an officer or member to gather updated chapter information, and ensure that your chapter's website is updated regularly. Check if your chapter has a website here:
