Div. 1 invites members and friends to join us at our Foundational Divisions Coalition (FDC) Social Hour on Thursday, Aug. 9 from 5-6:50 p.m., Marriott Marquis, Yerba Bueno Salons 12 & 13.

Enjoy refreshments and socialize with others from Divs. 1, 24, 26 and 39. This is an opportunity to join old friends and make new acquaintances while celebrating our collaboration with beverages and relaxed conversation. Students and early career psychologists (ECPs) with an interest in foundational issues (general, theoretical and historical) are particularly welcome and may qualify for one of Div. 1's free drink tickets.

The Foundational Divisions Coalition, including Divs. 1 (General Psychology), 24 (Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology), 26 (History of Psychology) and 39 (Psychoanalysis), was founded in 2012 to promote our distinctive contributions to APA and the field of psychology. An ongoing project involves offering a series of Big Questions, Essential Conversations symposia at APA conventions. This interdivisional programming has succeeded at raising disciplinary and public benefit issues often missing from APA convention programming. All those with interest in conceptual, historical, interdisciplinary and integrative approaches to psychology are encouraged to become involved in FDC.

Please also join us at our Div. 1 Suite Social Hour on Friday, Aug. 10 from 6-7:50 p.m. in Div. 1 Hospitality Suite (room number to be announced) in the Marriott Marquis. This will be an opportunity to enjoy refreshments and conversation in pleasant surroundings, and to meet Div. 1 executive committee members and award winners.

Students and early career psychologists (ECPs) are especially encouraged to attend. The first 72 student/ECP attendees will be awarded a free drink ticket for Saturday evening's Social Hour and free membership in Div. 1, if you aren't already a member. We're looking forward to meeting you.
