WPA stands for “Western Psychological Association” It is a conference held every April (2011: April 28th- May 1st at the Wilshire Grand Hotel) The location changes every year. WPA 2011 is in Los Angeles, California WPA 2010 was in Cancun, Mexico WPA 2009 was in Portland, Oregon WPA 2008 was in Irvine, California WPA 2007 was in Vancouver, BC, Canada Why was the WPA created? The Western Psychological Association was founded in 1921 for the purpose of stimulating the exchange of scientific and professional ideas and, in so doing to enhance interest in the processes of research and scholarship in the behavioral sciences. Membership in the Western Psychological Association is open to both students and professionals who wish to support these goals and who would like to be a part of the network that we have created to further them. Why Should I go to the WPA? If you are interested in Psychology, there will be a session for you! Attending a conference can expose you to what the field of Psychology has to offer. Influential Psychologists attend and present at the WPA. Last year the big name Psychologist was Dr. Philip Zimbardo (Mr. Psychology). Dr. Mio is the WPA President this year!

What to expect Convention activities: Hospitality suite Invited Program Poster session Invited Symposium Paper session Exhibitors WPA Receptions Special Events Dress code There is no formal dress code. However, all students are expected to dress professionally. Although some activities are listed as “invited”, they are open to everyone. Invited means that the speakers for those sessions were invited to speak rather than having submitted their research like everyone else. What to expect cont. Everyone receives a conference program of all of the presentations and poster sessions. We will also be creating a list just for our members of all of the professors and students who will be presenting at WPA from CPP. This is a great way to show your support for fellow Psi Chi members and your professors. This is also a great way to see what kind of research your professors are doing and perhaps become interested enough to join their research labs when positions are available.
