Rocky Mountain Regional Fall Letter

Dear Rocky Mountain Psi Chi members,

Hello! I hope you all had a very enjoyable summer and are settling back in to your fall schedules. As your new Rocky Mountain Regional Vice-President, I want to let all of you know that I am very excited about serving the needs of Psi Chi members in the Rocky Mountain Region. You are part of an exciting organization that continues to provide a number of great opportunities for student funding, research, and academic development. Listed below are several important updates, announcements, and deadlines to keep in mind for this year.

  • The 2016 Rocky Mountain Psychological Association (RMPA) convention will be April 14–16 in Denver, CO. Proposals to present at RMPA are due on January 15, 2016. Additional details are available on the RMPA webpage. Please note that students holding membership in Psi Chi may elect to submit proposals for oral papers and posters that will be specifically considered for Psi Chi awards. The Psi Chi Distinguished Speaker at RMPA will be Dr. Christopher Kilmartin (University of Mary Washington), an internationally known researcher in the areas of gender and violence prevention. Psi Chi will also have a number of additional sessions tailored to the interests of our members.
  • We want to help share ideas and get feedback that you can take directly back to your chapter. RMPA will have excellent programming for advisors including a Q&A session in which you can ask questions to a panel of experienced advisors and a Psi Chi professional staff member.
  • Is there something you want to see at RMPA? I invite you to send me your suggestions at The Psi Chi Rocky Mountain Steering Committee will soon begin to discuss the program. Your Steering Committee members are Dr. Elizabeth List (Northwest Nazarene University, ID) and Dr. Krista Bridgmon (Colorado State University–Pueblo). Their service again this year is much appreciated!
  • Make sure to take a look at the broad range of awards and grants available to Psi Chi members. Deadlines for many awards and grants are coming up within the next few months including those for the Undergraduate Research Grants (up to $1,500, November 2), SuperLab Research Grants (software, October 1), Thelma Hunt Research Grant ($3,000, November 2), and Mamie Phipps Clark Research Grants (up to $1,500, November 2), among others.
  • Check out Psi Chi’s two organizational publications, Psi Chi Journal of Psychological Research and Eye on Psi Chi. There are many interesting articles available to you in both.
  • If you are on Facebook, please join the Rocky Mountain Regional Psi Chi Facebook page!

Best wishes,
