Division 16 has established a strong scientific program that will be featured at the 2011 APA Convention in Washington, DC, August 4-7, 2011. With the leadership of Sara Bolt (Chair) and the contributions of over 50 reviewers, the convention program has been finalized. The Division 16 proceedings are extensive, with nearly 35 hours of events scheduled for faculty, practitioners, and students. There are 11 symposium sessions, over 150 posters, and 3 invited addresses included in the 2011 Division 16 convention program. The invited addresses include: Dr. Karen Stoiber (“Educating Urban and At-Risk Youth: Realities, Strategies, and Reform.”), Dr. Edward Shapiro (“Scaling the Mountain: Implementation Science in Delivering Evidence-Based Interventions in Schools”), and Dr. Louis Danielson (“Research to Practice in Education: Reality, Possibility, or Wishful Thinking?”).

In addition, all participants are encouraged to attend the Division 16 Presidential Address, the Division 16 Business Meeting, and the Division 16 Social Reception, each scheduled for Saturday 8/6 in the Independence Ballroom of the Washington Grand Hyatt. For those interested in contemporary professional resources, over 100 exhibitors from around the world will be participating in the 2011 APA Convention.

Also, if you want to take break from the convention or have an extended stay with your family, Washington is home to countless museums, monuments, and the National Zoo! We anticipate that you will enjoy the Division 16 program, as well as the many attractions in Washington, DC. The portal for both registration and housing are online.

Thank you again to Dr. Sara Bolt (D16 Convention Chair) for her efforts in preparing the convention schedule, and all those who served as reviewers of proposals. On behalf of the Division 16 Executive Committee and the Division 16 Convention Chair, we look forward to seeing you in Washington, DC on August 4-7, 2011.
