Psi Chi Digest #56
Please read the following Psi Chi news about the May 1 awards deadline, annual reports deadline, and transition reminder.
MAY 1 AWARDS DEADLINE: 3 PSI CHI AWARDS
Three Psi Chi awards share the May 1, 2003 deadline--the Guilford, Allyn & Bacon, and Erlbaum Awards. Undergraduate members may apply to all three, while the Erlbaum Award in Cognitive Science awards both the top graduate and undergraduate research from Psi Chi student members.
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.

One of the main problem areas for chapters is chapter officers from one academic year who graduate and do not ensure a smooth transition to the incoming set of 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. Further information on transition and officer guidelines can be accessed here:
