Southeastern Regional Spring Letter

Dear Psi Chi members,

Greetings and welcome to the start of a new year! I’m writing with some updates regarding the upcoming Southeastern Psychological Association (SEPA) convention, as well as other news relevant to our region.
  • The 2018 SEPA convention will be held from March 6–9, 2018, here in Charleston, SC. Stop by our exhibit booth to say hello and join us at our Psi Chi programs. Visit HERE to see the upcoming Psi Chi program. Learn more at
  • Kevin Gustafson and Nicholas Lee, the student members on our regional steering committee, are working to organize social events for students at SEPA. Find out more through our regional Facebook group:!/groups/661683827208932/
  • Faculty advisors should be on the look-out for an electronic invitation to our annual Faculty Appreciation Luncheon, held on Thursday, March 8 at 11:30 a.m. at Virginia’s on King.
  • I’d like to offer a special thanks to our 2017–18 regional steering committee members. They have been hard at work reviewing SEPA awards and grants in addition to preparing for Psi Chi programming at the convention. This year’s members are Alicia Briganti (Dalton State College), Shannon Dobson (North Greenville University), Gina Mariano (Troy University), Jenny Mason (Cumberland University), Nicholas Lee (The Citadel), and Kevin Gustafson (Charleston Southern University).
  • Be aware that chapters are eligible for the Model Chapter Award by completing a new, brief application. Further, chapters can also apply for the Regional Chapter and Ruth H. Cousins Awards by completing this application.
  • Travel grants are still available for Psi Chi members who plan to attend professional conferences this year. Thanks to our GEICO sponsorship for the funding!
  • Check out and/or submit to our two publications: the Psi Chi Journal of Psychological Research and Eye on Psi Chi. Submissions are welcome from all Psi Chi members.
  • Stay active in the Psi Chi community all year with social media: on Facebook with the  Central Office or the  Southeastern Region, on  LinkedIn, or on  Twitter. Connect with nearby or distant chapters. Psi Chi is an international community; take advantage of that diversity.
Please be in touch if you have any questions or if I can do anything to assist you, and best wishes for a successful remainder of the semester.
