2015 APA Convention

2015 APA convention wrap-up

Convention summary and thank-yous.

By Matthew T. Weaver, PhD

I wanted to thank all who helped make the 2015 Div. 28 program a success. We had a number of strong symposia, new fellow's addresses, awards program, collaborative programs, paper sessions, poster sessions and the NIAAA/NIDA early career investigator poster session and social hour.

I also wanted to thank those who voiced support both in person and across distances. I was honored to serve our division and humbled by the show of support from colleagues and friends. It was truly my pleasure to serve as the program chair, especially for my friend Bill Stoops. I would also be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the efforts of the newly formed Social Media Committee, chaired by Jin Yoon. In particular the efforts for Ron Wood, Bill Stoops and Kelly Dunn for making the #DIV28 #APA2015 initiative so successful.

I'm looking forward to another strong and successful 2016 program, which will be under the guidance of our incoming chair, Mollie Miller and incoming president, Stacey Sigmon. I'll see you in Denver!
