Western Regional Spring 2013 Letter
Dear Psi Chi Members,
I hope you are excited about WPA. We’ve got a great lineup for the Psi Chi
program, and don’t miss the food at the Leadership workshop. I ordered the
“Chocolate” menu so we can all recharge our self-regulation system. I’ve listed
the schedule below.
On Saturday afternoon at 3:15 p.m., please join us at the Chapter Exchange for
refreshments and a trivia contest. It is always great to see what chapters are
doing, so bring slides with pictures to share. Contact me if you would like to
make a 5-minute presentation.
This year, Psi Chi will have a booth at WPA. Please stop by and visit with us to
learn about more opportunities that Psi Chi can offer. In the meantime, visit
the Awards Page to learn about
upcoming award opportunities and deadlines.
If you have a Facebook account, please join the Psi Chi Western Region Facebook
group. The goal is to build a stronger community across the region among Psi Chi
chapters. Perhaps at the chapter exchange at WPA this year, we will recognize
some FB friends in other chapters.
I look forward to meeting many of you at WPA this year.
