Report from program chair

We look forward to offering varied programming at the 2015 APA convention.

By Maria del Pilar Grazioso, PhD

We are fast approaching our 2015 APA convention programming deadlines. As the program chair for the division´s 2015 convention, I would like to invite you to participate actively in our Div 1 activities.

2015 will be a special year for Div 1: We will be celebrating our 70th Anniversary. This is a special time to recognize and honor the committed and devoted work of founders, their legacies, and our new developments. We would like to bring our Psychology together through our theme: "Unified in Our Diversity: Multiple Perspectives on Psychological Science and Practice."

We are looking forward to wonderful convention programming at different levels: collaborative proposals, divisional proposals, and general programming. Recognition and awards ceremonies, social time, business meetings, networking opportunities, and other encounters as well as professional development will take place in Toronto next summer.

We would like to invite every one of you to send us your suggestions, ideas, and experiences for a scheduling and programming that will represent and engage us all. If you are willing to serve as a proposal reviewer, please let me know.

As a start, I would like to share important deadlines to remember:

Submission of Collaborative Proposals—Must be received by Wednesday, Oct.15, 2014.

These proposals have to be submitted by program chairs, so please contact me if you have ideas or requests, and send your proposals to me as email attachments.

Submission of Divisional Proposals to Divisions—Must be received by Monday, Dec. 1, 2014. These proposals will have to be submitted through the APA web page no later than midnight on Dec. 1.

We will also have programming in our hospitality suite, which is a great place for committee meetings, informal programs, and social events (e.g., for students, for ECPs). We will send out a call for these later.

We are looking forward to hearing from you and to seeing you in Toronto in 2015.
