Div. 20 program co-chairs discuss events planned for the upcoming convention.

By Walter Boot and Chris Rosnick

The Div. 20 program for the 2015 APA convention in Toronto (Aug. 6–9) is complete, and we hope you enjoy our programming. As mentioned in the previous newsletter, the presidential theme selected this year by Sara Czaja is “Aging, Diversity, and Technology,” and speakers will address key issues around this theme from several perspectives. Our program consists of five collaborative symposia (CE credits available for 4 of 5), eight other symposia and special sessions (CE credits available for three of these sessions), 42 posters will be presented, and we will be co-listed on over 20 other divisional programs. The executive committee meeting will be from 9 to 10:50 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 6. The programming social hour will be held on-site immediately following the presidential address on Friday, Aug. 7 from 6 to 6:50 p.m. Wine and light appetizers will be available. Finally, the off-site social event will be held at Joe Badali's Ristornate Italiano Bar. Please contact Walter Boot to reserve your seat. We look forward to seeing you in Toronto.
