Div. 1 midwinter meeting

February 2017 midwinter meeting activities

Organizing events for current and new members.

By Irene Hanson Frieze, PhD, and Alicia M. Trotman, PhD

At our midwinter meeting in Washington, D.C., in February 2017, we focused on two major items: (1) revising our bylaws; and (2) strategizing activities found effective with current Div. 1 members, and creating enterprises to add new members. The revised bylaws are in this newsletter, open for your comments.

In addition, the Div. 1 program for the APA Convention in August 2017 has been included (please refer to the PDF version of the newsletter) to highlight events for you to meet with Div. 1 members and spark discussions on all the diverse specialties in psychology—or inquire about renewing your membership, becoming a fellow or an officer. We will also be having a full program of events in our division suite in room 6-126 in the Marriott Marquis hotel near the convention center. Please stop by.

Our fall/winter issue will profile our award recipients, new fellows, current officers and new officers beginning this year. We welcome you.
