MEMBERSHIP IN APA DIVISION 20
As the membership chair of Division 20: Adult Development and Aging of the American Psychological Association, Dr. Joe Gaugler would like to invite you in our ongoing effort to publicize the benefits of membership in Division 20. This includes great professional networking opportunities, reduced journal subscription and publisher rates, and a variety of other benefits. As a faculty advisor of Psi Chi on your campus, would you be willing to help promote Division 20, and its membership benefits, to your students or colleagues? If you are interested, Dr. Gaugler would be happy to: 1) mail you some membership brochures to disseminate to students (when they become available); 2) draft text of an email message you could send to your students or colleagues, or do both. As a leader in psychology education and research, your opinion and assistance matter greatly to the current and future members of the division.
